Bills promoted WR Kevin Elliott from their practice squad.
Undrafted out of Florida A&M, Elliott had an unsuccessful cup of coffee on the Jaguars' active roster earlier this year, struggling with drops and managing 108 yards on ten receptions. The Bills will carry him on their offseason roster.

Jaguars waived WR Kevin Elliott.
The undrafted rookie's fall from graces was swift. Elliott dropped two passes (and arguably a third) while committing a penalty against the Jets last week. He had tumbled to sixth receiver in Wednesday's practice. Jordan Shipley is locked into the No. 3 role. The Jags promoted OL Austin Pasztor from the practice squad to take Elliott's roster spot.

Following Sunday's loss to the Jets, coach Mike Mularkey called out WR Kevin Elliot for drops.
Elliot, an undrafted rookie, had just three catches on 10 targets. He had two glaring drops and stepped out of bounds before a catch on the Jags' final drive. "Kevin has had too many drops," Mularkey said. "He hasn't had as many opportunities as some of these other guys, but he has had drops. Those are uncontested plays that he should make and I know he knows he should make."

Kevin Elliott is expected to draw the start opposite Justin Blackmon with Cecil Shorts (concussion) ruled out for Week 14.
Undrafted out of Florida A&M, Elliott has seven receptions for 70 yards for the Jags this season. While he's a good bet to draw 6-8 targets with Antonio Cromartie shadowing Justin Blackmon, Elliott has shown nothing to suggest fantasy owners should roll the dice against a Jets defense allowing the 27th-most points to wide receivers.
