JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Jaguars are familiar with six of the seven players they signed to the practice squad on Sunday: All but one were with the team throughout training camp and the preseason and were cut on Saturday.

The Jaguars have three open spots on the practice squad remaining. One could be earmarked for quarterback Brandon Allen, who was one of five players the Jaguars cut on Sunday.

Here's a look at the practice squad players who signed on Sunday:

RB Tim Cook: Cook was the Jaguars' second-leading rusher in the preseason (93 yards on 26 carries). The undrafted rookie from Oregon State also can handle some fullback duties. He ran for just 137 yards and one touchdown in two seasons with the Beavers after starting his career at Eastern Arizona Community College.

DE Hunter Dimick: The undrafted rookie from Utah didn't record a single tackle in the preseason. He had 28.5 sacks in four years with the Utes, including a team-high 13.5 in 2016.

WR Amba Etta-Tawo: The 2016 first-team All-ACC selection at Syracuse failed to impress during camp and caught two passes for 16 yards in the preseason. Etta-Tawo caught 94 passes for 1,482 yards and 14 touchdowns last season with the Orange, which were single-season school records.

G Avery Gennesy: He worked mainly with the third team in camp and the preseason after starting every game at left tackle the past two seasons at Texas A&M.

TE David Grinnage: He signed with Green Bay as an undrafted free agent in April 2016 but was released by the Packers with an injury settlement after rookie minicamp. He was out of football last year and signed with the Jaguars on Aug. 14.

CB Tracy Howard: The Jaguars claimed him off waivers from Cleveland in April and he made seven tackles and forced two fumbles in the preseason. He played in 15 games (three starts) with the Browns last year and had 20 tackles and one pass breakup. Reed started three of the final four games at left guard after Patrick Omameh suffered a foot injury and was in the mix for a reserve role throughout training camp and preseason.

OL Chris Reed: Reed signed with the Jaguars as an undrafted free agent in May 2015 and spent the entire season on the practice squad. He made four starts at left guard and played in six other games with the Jaguars in 2016.
