They promoted cornerback Sidney Jones from the practice squad to take Wilson's place on the 53-man roster. Jacksonville already was carrying two backup free safeties: second-year pro Andrew Wingard and rookie Brandon Watson.

Wingard, who had a fourth-quarter interception to help seal a victory against Indianapolis in Week 1, is expected to start when the Jaguars (1-0) play at Tennessee on Sunday.

Wilson, who joined the team as an undrafted rookie in 2016, had started 19 consecutive games for the Jaguars.

Jacksonville also signed rookie cornerback Josh Nurse and running back Craig Reynolds to the practice squad and released rookie cornerback Amari Henderson from the practice squad.
