OWINGS MILLS, Md. – The heat got much realer, and so did the intensity.

The Jaguars on Tuesday afternoon held their second joint practice in as many days against the Baltimore Ravens, with the teams working for about two and a half hours at the Under Armour Performance Center.

The teams worked in 92-degree temperatures – and if Monday's first joint practice between the teams felt low-key at times and without incident, Tuesday's work was more spirited and featured one brief period of shoving in a goal-line drill with the Jaguars on offense and Ravens on defense.

Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette and wide receiver DJ Chark Jr. were both near the "skirmish," which was minor and ended almost before it began. The teams exchanged words for a few plays thereafter.

"It's not all sunshine and roses, right?" Ravens Head Coach John Harbaugh told media after practice. "It gets competitive out there, man. Those things didn't escalate. There were a couple guys talking – two plays the whole practice. Pretty quickly pulled them apart."

Jaguars Head Coach Doug Marrone spoke to the media before the session. Coverage of his availability can be found on

Fournette had a second consecutive strong day, with the two practices against the Ravens perhaps the best the third-year veteran has had during 2019 Jaguars Training Camp. The Jaguars' passing offense also had a good practice Tuesday, with quarterback Nick Foles continuing to show good chemistry with wide receivers Chris Conley, DJ Chark Jr. and Dede Westbrook.

The teams alternated first team against first team and second team against second team again Tuesday, and the Jaguars' offense for a second consecutive day fared well in red-zine drills.

Tuesday's work also included a live period with Ravens offense against Jaguars defense on one field and Jaguars offense versus Ravens defense on the other field with both defensive units "tackling to the ground." Few if any starters participated in those full-contact drills.

The Jaguars do not practice Wednesday, but will hold a walkthrough in advance of Thursday's 7:30 p.m. preseason opener against the Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium.

Here's a look at Day 11 practice:


The clear choice for this for the Jaguars Tuesday came in an early 11-on-11 drill, with Foles throwing deep to Conley. With Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith in coverage, Conley won the matchup and beat Smith deep. Foles threw a perfect pass for a 65-yard touchdown.

Wide receiver Marqise Lee and left tackle Cam Robinson remain on the Physically Unable to Perform list; Lee missed last season with a preseason knee injury that included a torn anterior cruciate ligament while Robinson missed the last 14 games of the season with a torn ACL. Linebacker Jake Ryan (knee) remains on the Reserve/Non-Football injury list. Marrone said Sunday he expects to update the return of Lee and Robinson later this week.

Rookie running back Ryquell Armstead remained out with a quadriceps injury Tuesday, and rookie cornerback Saivion Smith worked after missing Monday with an ankle injury. Cornerback A.J. Bouye and running back Thomas Rawls also remained on the side with hamstring soreness.

Rookie linebacker Quincy Williams (knee) and rookie tight end Josh Oliver (hamstring) did not make the trip because of injuries.


*The Jaguars continue to rotate the starting offensive line. A day after the team worked rookie Jawaan Taylor with the starters extensively at right tackle, veteran Cedric Ogbuehi worked with the starters at left tackle Tuesday with Leonard Wester at right tackle. …
