The Jacksonville Jaguars have promoted cornerback Breon Borders and offensive lineman Brandon Thomas from the practice squad to the 53-man active roster. To make room Jacksonville Jaguars Hoodie , the team placed rookie safety Ronnie Harrison (knee) and offensive lineman Jermey Parnell (knee) on the team’s reserve/injured list.Borders has been on Jacksonville’s practice squad since Week 8. He originally signed with the Oakland Raiders as an undrafted rookie in 2017 and spent the first 14 weeks of the 2017 season on the Raiders’ practice squad. Borders was on the Buffalo Bills’ active roster for the last two games of 2017, but was inactive in both contests. He saw action on special teams in the Bills’ AFC Wild Card game against the Jaguars. He played in 49 games (35 starts) at Duke University from 2013 through 2016 and registered 148 tackles, 12 interceptions, and 34 passes defended. In 2016 as a senior, Borders earned third-team All-ACC honors from the league’s head coaches after recording 27 tackles, 11 passes defended, and two interceptions.Thomas is a second-year veteran that played collegiately at Clemson. He also spent time with San Francisco and Detroit before originally joining the Jaguars in 2017. Thomas has never played in an NFL game.The Jaguars now have 53 players on their active roster. ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — While leading the Buffalo Bills to a second straight win, it sounds as if rookie quarterback Josh Allen might have made a positive impression on one of his harshest critics.After he was reminded this week of how Jacksonville cornerback Jalen Ramsey once referred to him as "trash," Allen was making his way off the field following a 24-21 victory over the Jaguars on Sunday when he was tapped him on the back. Allen turned to see Ramsey with his hand outstretched."He just shook my hand and said Ryquell Armstead Jersey , ‘Good job,'" Allen said. "He's an ultimate competitor just like myself, and maybe it's a respect thing. I'm not really sure," he added. "But I appreciate that, and it takes a big man to do that."Showing few signs of the sprained right elbow that sidelined him the past five weeks, Allen completed a 75-yard touchdown pass to Robert Foster. Then the 22-year-old Allen punctuated his return by posing in the end zone with his biceps flexed after breaking two tackles and scoring the go-ahead touchdown on a 14-yard run at the start of the fourth quarter."I love the fire. He personifies Buffalo, right? He's a hard worker, blue-collar kid, and loves to compete," coach Sean McDermott said. "He's still so young http://www.jaguarsfanstore.com/Quincy-Williams-II-Jersey , so again, let's manage expectations. It was a good start for him."Ramsey credited Allen for leading the Bills to the victory, but didn't exactly take back the comments he made about the quarterback in a story published in GQ magazine in August."It doesn't matter what I said. I'm sure that's really what he was thinking," Ramsey said. "You can have opinions, but it's about what you go out there and do. And what he did was go out there for his team and get a win."Allen was far from perfect while exhibiting some of the inconsistency he showed while going 2-3 before he got hurt in a 20-13 loss at Houston on Oct. 14. He finished 8 of 19 for 160 yards, and his touchdown to Foster was the longest completion by a Bills quarterback since Week 2 of the 2016 season.Allen also had a team-leading 99 yards rushing to set a franchise record for quarterbacks.The Bills finished with 327 yards of offense for their second-best total this season and their top total with Allen at quarterback. He also didn't turn the ball over, after throwing five interceptions and losing a fumble in his previous six appearances.It was the type of development McDermott wanted to see from Allen. He started the rookie ahead of journeyman Matt Barkley, who led Buffalo to a 41-10 win over the New York Jets before the Bills' bye week.The Bills invested plenty into Allen by trading up five spots to select him seventh overall — the highest position in the draft order Buffalo has ever chosen a quarterback."It was a good start for him," McDermott added. "That's a heck of a defense out there."Allen set up Buffalo's first touchdown drive — a 6-yard run by Isaiah McKenzie — with a 32-yard pass to Kelvin Benjamin, who was being covered by Ramsey.The Bills then scored on their next possession on Allen's pass to Foster. Standing in the pocket Josh Oliver Jersey , with pass-rushers Yannick Ngakoue and Dawuane Smoot closing in on him, Allen found Foster wide open up the right sideline.Allen didn't get to see the completion because he was hit just as he released the pass."Whether I'm standing up or laying down on the ground, a touchdown is a touchdown and that feeling won't change," he said. "It was awesome."Bills safety Jordan Poyer was impressed by what he saw from Allen."Jalen can say whatever he wants to say about Josh, but Josh came in there and handled that defense today," Poyer said.Allen played down any hint of bitterness he might hold against Ramsey."There was a lot of trash-talking before and after, but ultimately my job is to go out there and help this team win football games," he said.
