After missing their last two games, the Jacksonville Jaguars have activated punter Logan Cooke off of their Reserve/ COVID-19 list, which points to him resuming his duties Week 17. His return comes as the Jags are preparing for their season finale against the Indianapolis Colts.
Cooke didn’t surface on Week 15’s injury report but missed their trip to Baltimore with what the team labeled as an illness. As a result, the Jags had to abruptly let kicker Aldrick Rosas handle the duties at punter. He registered three punts on the day and averaged 36.7 yards a punt.
Afterward, the Jags signed veteran punter Dustin Colquitt for Week 16’s home game against the Chicago Bears. In his Jags debut, Colquitt registered six punts for 272 yards, which was good for an average of 45.3 yards per punt.
When the Jags placed Cooke on Reserve/ COVID-19 on Dec. 22, they also signed Cameron Nizialek to their practice squad.
Cooke will return to the roster after putting together a pretty solid season where he’s averaged 47.6 yards per punt in 2020. He’s also pinned teams within the 10-yard line or less 11 times this season, which is a total that is good for second in the league.
