JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- The Jacksonville Jaguars have waived rookie receiver Kevin Elliott and activated rookie offensive lineman Austin Pasztor from the practice squad.
The team also signed receiver Jerrell Jackson to the practice squad.
Elliott, who started one game and played in a dozen more for the Jaguars (2-11), caught seven passes for 70 yards. He also played a key role on special teams. But Elliott dropped numerous passes this season, including two in Sunday's 17-10 loss to the New York Jets. He also was flagged for illegal touching on a key play with about a minute left.
Pasztor, a 6-foot-7, 308-pound Canadian, spent 12 weeks on Jacksonville's practice squad after spending training camp with Minnesota. He was the fourth overall pick by the Edmonton Eskimos in the 2012 Canadian Football League draft.

The Jaguars are struggling to find their way and that usually means the Head Coach is going to lose his job.
As we get closer to the end of the season it's time to start looking ahead to the coaching changes for next year.
Here's a quick look at the teams I think will, or should, be looking for a coaching change when the season ends.
Buffalo Bills - The Bills...
Now that the 2012 NFL season is over the season turns to what-if's. The biggest what –if to me, was Maurice Jones-Drew’s holdout. What if he had been around for training camp? What if the team gave in and had given him the money he wanted? What if he had stayed healthy? All valid questions about the team’s most well-known and star player.Around the time of mini-camps and...
Jacksonville fullback Montell Owens, who ran for 91 yards on 14 carries and also scored a touchdown Sunday against the Jets, will get another chance to start in Week 15.Fantasy Spin:He'll likely find it tougher against the Dolphins' run defense which is giving up about 34 yards less on the ground than the Jets.
Jaguars receiver Cecil Shorts III (concussion) has practiced the past two days in a limited capacity after passing concussion tests and should be able to return to the field Sunday.Fantasy Spin:Shorts has caught 20 balls for 368 yards and four touchdowns in his last four starts and has been one this season's biggest surprises. Limiting him in practice is likely a precautionary move.
Jaguars running back Rashad Jennings, who sustained a concussion in Sunday's 34-18 loss to Buffalo in Week 13 has been ruled out for Week 15.Fantasy Spin:With Maurice Jones-Drew and Jalen Parmele already on the shelf with injuries the team's best backfield option is Montell Owens, who rushed for 91 yards on 14 carries against the Jets in Week 14.

After losing at home to the Jets, the Jaguars look poised to lose out. Their only remaining home game is against the Patriots and getting another win would mean winning in Tennessee or Miami. They are in are in the driver’s seat for the #1 pick right now.
BY SEAN DONOVANThis week will mark just the second time in the Jacksonville Jaguars' 18-year history that the team has played a regular-season game in Miami.But one Jaguar, starting quarterback Chad Henne, is no stranger to South Florida.

Late in November in an apparent cost cutting move the Philadelphia Eagles cut Jason Babin. At the time, while many people that I spoke to called it a blatant cash motivated move by a cheap owner I found plenty of reasons from a football sense to justify it. The recent decision to reduce Mike Patterson's salary after placing him on the non-football illness list is much more difficult...
