Let go Monday

Hammond was waived by the Jaguars on Monday.

Sticks with Jacksonville

Hammond signed a reserve/future deal with the Jaguars on Monday.

Returns from COVID list

Hammond (undisclosed) was restored to Jacksonville's practice squad from the practice squad COVID-19 list Wednesday.

Lands on practice squad COVID list

Hammond (undisclosed) was placed on the Jaguars' practice squad COVID-19 list Wednesday.

Analysis: Hammond was elevated to the Jaguars' active roster for Sunday's loss to the Jets and made his NFL debut, playing eight offensive snaps. The 23-year-old will have to clear protocols before returning to the team facilities, which makes a second straight elevation in Week 17 unlikely.

Returns to practice squad

Hammond reverted to Jacksonville's practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

Analysis: Hammond was elevated to the active roster for Sunday's loss to the Jets and made his NFL debut, though he's still seeking his first reception after playing eight offensive snaps.

Dec 27, 2021 9:44 PM EST


Promoted to active roster

Hammond has been elevated to the Jaguars' active roster ahed of Sunday's game versus the Jets.

Analysis: Hammond will slot in as the team's No. 5 wide receiver. He will also presumably be available to help out on special teams. This will be his NFL debut.

Leads team in receiving

Hammond caught six of seven targets for 55 yards during Saturday's preseason loss to the Browns.

Analysis: Hammond led Jacksonville in both catches and receiving yards while playing only 21 offensive snaps, but his 7.9 yards per target isn't much to get excited about. The 23-year-old played in the second half when C.J. Beathard and Jake Luton were at quarterback, and at this point the wideout is likely competing for a spot on the practice squad.

Stays with Jags

The Jaguars signed Hammond to a reserve/future contract Monday, John Shipley of SI.com reports.

Analysis: Hammond didn't receive any on-field opportunities with Jacksonville this season, but he's secured himself a spot in the organization heading into the new league year. The Florida standout will continue to provide depth at wide receiver as he pursues his NFL debut.
