OWINGS MILLS — The Baltimore Ravens have promoted rookie offensive tackle D.J. Jones to the active roster from the practice squad.
He takes over the roster spot that was previously occupied by wide receiver and kick returner David Reed, who was placed on injured reserve with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.
The Ravens also signed former Colorado wide receiver Patrick Williams to the practice squad.
Jones, 23, is a 6-foot-5, 315-pounder from Nebraska who was signed to the Ravens’ practice squad on Oct. 19 after being cut from the Miami Dolphins’ practice squad.
The Omaha native played in 39 games for the Cornhuskers, starting 17 and went undrafted after starting every game at right offensive tackle as a senior.
