Tuesday's NFL injury and roster news for Week 1

The Jacksonville Jaguars announced they have promoted quarterback Mike Glennon to the 53-man active roster and placed linebacker Quincy Williams on injured reserve. He’s battling a core muscle injury.

Glennon was drafted by the Buccaneers in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft. He then had stints in Chicago (2017), Arizona (2018) and recently Oakland (2019). With the Raiders he played in two games and completed six passes for 56 yards and one TD. In his seven-year career, he has completed 488 of 801 passes (60.9 comp. pct.) for 5,163 yards and 36 TDs. Glennon gives Jacksonville a veteran behind rookie Jake Luton, who’s listed on the unofficial depth chart to backup starter Gardner Minshew.

The Jags also filled out their 16-man practice squad by signing defensive tackle Daniel Ekuale and cornerback Sidney Jones. Cornerback Tramaine Brock was released from the team’s reserve/injured list via injury settlement.
