Jags remove Tavon Austin from IR, cut Phillip Dorsett

The Jacksonville Jaguars designated Tavon Austin to return from injured reserve on Monday and released fellow wide receiver Phillip Dorsett from the practice squad.

Austin suffered a quad injury in practice and was placed on IR at the beginning of September.

Austin, 31, signed with the Jaguars in early August. The 2013 first-round pick (eighth overall) has played in 100 NFL games with the Rams (2013-17), Cowboys (2018-19) and Packers (2020), catching 220 passes for 2,026 yards with 15 touchdowns.

Dorsett, 28, made his Jacksonville debut in Sunday’s 31-19 loss to Arizona but did not catch a pass. The 2015 first-round pick has 124 receptions for 1,634 yards and 11 touchdowns in 72 career games with the Colts (2015-16), Patriots (2017-19) and Jaguars.

Jacksonville also signed kicker Matthew Wright to the practice squad. The 25-year-old made his NFL debut with the Steelers in 2020, making all four of his field-goal attempts and all seven extra points in three games.
