The Jacksonville Jaguars announced Saturday morning that the team had promoted Pinkard, the former Old Dominion receiver from the practice squad to the active roster.

Pinkard was signed to the Jaguars practice squad in April, after spending time with the Green Bay Packers & Oakland Raiders practice squads.

At Old Dominion (2010-2013), Pinkard totaled 2,338 yards on 160 catches.
