JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Jacksonville Jaguars placed veteran running back Chris Thompson on the COVID-19 list Saturday. He did not make the cross-country trip to Los Angeles to play the Chargers.

The Jaguars (1-5) activated running back Devine Ozigbo from the injured reserve/designated for return list. He could make his 2020 debut against the Chargers (1-4).

Ozigbo missed the first six games after sustaining a left hamstring injury late in training camp.

Jacksonville also utilized its two practice squad elevation spots on safety Doug Middleton and tight end Eric Saubert. The team ruled out safety Jarrod Wilson (hamstring) and tight end Tyler Eifert (neck) a day earlier. Middleton and Saubert will revert to the practice squad Monday without having to clear waivers.
