Brackens returns to practice

Jaguars defensive end Tony Brackens was medically cleared today and moved to the active roster from the active/physically unable to perform list. Brackens worked out with his teammates during the morning practice (the afternoon session was for special teams only).

Brackens had been placed on the active/PUP list on July 25. The leading sacker in franchise history, he is returning from microfracture knee surgery last November and from a June appendectomy.

"The only limits for us are to work him in responsibly," said Jaguars head coach Jack Del Rio. "We don't want to go from running on the sidelines to full-speed, full-contact drills. We're bringing him into drills slowly. He's practicing, and we'll continue to increase his reps as we go."

The Jaguars are in their last four days of training camp, which concludes on Wednesday. Off to a 2-0 start in the preseason, they will play their third exhibition game on Saturday night against the defending Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium.

On Monday, the Jaguars will practice from 8:45 to 11:00 a.m. and 4:00 to 5:30 p.m., with Del Rio available to the media following the morning practice and players available from 11:15 to 12:15 p.m.
