Nathan Cottrell: Ready for Week 17

Cottrell (hip) is active for Sunday's game against the Colts.

Analysis: The 24-year-old was considered questionable with the hip injury but is good to go for the season finale. Cottrell should handle kick return duties and serve as a reserve tailback behind Dare Ogunbowale and Devine Ozigbo on Sunday.

Nathan Cottrell: Deemed questionable for Sunday

Cottrell (hip) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.

Analysis: Cottrell logged a trio of limited practices this week, putting his Week 17 status into question. Even with James Robinson (ankle) out last week, Cottrell didn't play a snap on offense, so his potential absence in the season finale only hurts the team's depth behind Dare Ogunbowale and Devine Ozigbo.

Cottrell played one offensive snap during Sunday's 27-20 win over the Colts.

Analysis: The rookie UDFA was active for the season opener and played 19 snaps on special teams.

Nathan Cottrell: Waived by Jacksonville

The Jaguars waived Cottrell on Friday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.
