JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Jacksonville Jaguars have activated third-year offensive tackle Josh Wells to the 53-man roster from the team’s injured reserve/designated for return list, the club announced today. To make room on the roster, the Jaguars placed fourth-year left guard Patrick Omameh on the reserve/injured list with a left foot injury.
Wells, 6-6, 305, was originally signed by Jacksonville as an undrafted rookie from James Madison in 2014 and he appeared in 12 games as a rookie, primarily on special teams. Wells, 25, spent the 2015 season on injured reserve with a left thumb injury. He was placed on injured reserve earlier this season on Sept. 4 with a right thumb injury, but was designated for return on Nov. 1.
Omameh sustained a left foot injury in the Jaguars’ Week 11 game at Detroit and was replaced at left guard by first-year offensive lineman Chris Reed.
