The NFL's Jacksonville Jaguars have promoted former Virginia offensive lineman Austin Pasztor from the practice squad to their active roster.
Pasztor was promoted on Friday when the Jaguars waived rookie wide receiver Kevin Elliott. According to the team's official website, Pasztor has been practicing with the first-team offensive line all week, and is expected to make his NFL debut on Sunday against the Miami Dolphins.
Pasztor has spent the last 12 weeks on Jacksonville's practice squad. He spent training camp with the Minnesota Vikings, who signed Pasztor as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Virginia last spring.
Pasztor started all 37 games in his final three seasons at Virginia. He was a first-team All-ACC selection, and a second team All-American pick by the Associated Press, his senior year.
