Jaguars activate K McLaughlin, S Wingard

The Jacksonville Jaguars made six roster moves Saturday, including promoting four players from their practice squad.

The Jags (1-7) activated kicker Chase McLaughlin from the commissioner’s permission list and safety Andrew Wingard from injured reserve ahead of Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers (6-2).

Linebacker Joe Giles-Harris was activated from the practice squad to replace Dakota Allen (ankle), who was ruled out for the game, while receiver Terry Godwin will replace Laviska Shenault Jr., out with an injured hamstring.

Offensive lineman KC McDermott and safety Doug Middleton were also promoted from the practice squad. Starting center Brandon Linder (back) was ruled out and won’t make the trip.

The return of Wingard, who started three games before going on IR ahead of the team’s Week 6 game, was expected. He has 25 tackles and an interception.

McLaughlin replaces Josh Lambo, who is out for the season with a gluteus medius injury. McLaughlin has connected on 18 of 23 on field goals and made all 26 of his extra points in his career. The second-year player has spent time with the Colts, Chargers and 49ers.

Giles-Harris, who joined the team last season as an undrafted free agent, was activated for five games last season, playing mainly on special teams. As for Godwin, this marks the first time he has been elevated from the practice squad since joining the team last year.

McDermott will be on the active roster for the third time this season after playing on special teams against the Dolphins and Bengals. Middleton will be on the active roster for the fourth time, as he saw action against the Bengals, Chargers and Texans.
