Jacksonville Jaguars Re-Sign QB Jeff Tuel

The Jaguars have made a move at quarterback, as Blake Bortles' suffered a sprained shoulder in Sunday's loss at Tampa Bay.

From NFL Media:




The Jacksonville Jaguars today announced the signing of second-year QB Jeff Tuel to the team’s practice squad.


Tuel, 6-3, 211, spent the 2015 training camp with Jacksonville before being released on August 29.  Tuel played in two regular season games (one start) for Buffalo in 2014, after originally signing as an undrafted rookie. Tuel spent the 2014 season on Buffalo’s practice squad before being waived on May 29, 2015. Tuel first joined the Jaguars after he was claimed by Jacksonville off waivers via Buffalo on June 1, 2015.


Tuel attended Washington State, where he appeared 31 games with 26 starts, and completed 531 of 865 passes for  5,936 yards and 33 touchdowns. Tuel was born in Boca Raton, Fla. and attended Clovis West (Fresno, Calif.) High School.


There was an opening on the practice squad after LB Jordan Tripp was promoted to the active roster prior to Sunday’s game at Tampa Bay. The Jaguars’ 10-man practice squad is now full.
