The Jacksonville Jaguars went through an afternoon practice at
Ferrell Fields today, with quarterback Mark Brunell and offensive
tackle Tony Boselli held out.
Boselli has been nursing a bruised knee, and Coughlin said if he
doesn't practice on Thursday he most likely would not play Saturday
night against the New York Giants. Brunell had some tightness in
his groin, causing him to miss the practice. "He was uncomfortable
in some of his sets, so we decided not to take a chance on doing any
more damage," said Coughlin.
Of first-round draft choice Fernando Bryant, who signed on August
9, Coughlin said, "He's progressing. The more work he gets, the
more confidence he gets. He has made good strides this week. This
is the week I've noticed him more than any other."
The team will go through its final day of two-a-day practices on
Thursday. Before leaving for New York on Friday, the team will
have a closed walk-through. The Jaguars and Giants will play at
7:00 p.m. Saturday at Giants Stadium, the fourth time they have
faced in the preseason in five years.
The final day of training camp will be Monday, August 23, with a
3:20 p.m. practice scheduled. That will be the final practice that is
open to the public this season.
