Former South Carolina specialist waived by Jacksonville Jaguars after injury
Former South Carolina K Elliott Fry has been waived by the Jacksonville Jaguars with an injury designation.
A groin injury will sideline Fry, who was in Ryan Santoso to be the Jaguars’ starting placekicker. If Fry clears the waivers list, he’ll revert to Jacksonville’s injured list.
#Jaguars HC Doug Pederson says that Kicker Elliott Fry suffered a groin injury which led him to being waived injured today.

Jaguars coach Doug Pederson mentioned that he liked the competition between Fry and Santoso and told John Shipley of Jaguar Report that he needed to see more from Santoso before naming him the starting. This has led to some speculation that Fry could return to Jacksonville when he gets healthy
“I think we need to see more,” Doug Pederson says about Ryan Santoso. Was noncommittal when asked if he thinks he’s the guy at kicker.
