JACKSONVILLE – The pads were off, and the bags were packed.

The Jaguars still got two hours of practice in on Tuesday as they prepared for an afternoon's flight north to Minnesota.

The Jaguars worked for about two hours inside Dream Finders Homes Flex Field at Daily's Place Tuesday on Day 13 of 2018 Training Camp. The work was in shorts, shells and helmets – ending a streak of 11 consecutive practices in full pads.

The Jaguars will practice against the defending NFC North Champion Minnesota Vikings in Minneapolis Wednesday and Thursday, with the two teams playing a preseason game in Minneapolis Saturday, August 18.

Cornerback Jalen Ramsey and defensive end Dante Fowler Jr. did not participate in practice Tuesday. They were suspended by the team Sunday for violating team rules and conduct unbecoming of a Jaguars football player. They are expected to return to the team Monday, according to Jaguars Head Coach Doug Marrone.

Marrone spoke to the media as scheduled early Tuesday morning. Coverage of his media availability can be found on

Here's a look at Day 14 practice:


*Tuesday's work was unpadded and comparatively light, therefore featuring fewer standout moments than the padded camp practices. The team also worked through some lower-intensity walkthrough periods toward the end of practice. …

*Wide receiver Rashad Greene Sr. caught a 15-yard pass near the sidelines from backup quarterback Cody Kessler midway through practice. …

*Cornerback Bryce Canady had a pass defensed on a pass from rookie quarterback Tanner Lee to wide receiver Jaydon Mickens. …

*Safety Cody Davis also had a pass breakup. …

*Wide receiver Dede Westbrook continued a strong camp, catching a 35-yard pass down the sideline from Kessler and also having a 10-yard reception from Kessler. …

*Tight end Austin Seferian Jenkins caught multiple passes from starting quarterback Blake Bortles, including a 15-yard pass in the middle of the field early in practice. …

*Wide receiver Keelan Cole caught a 20-yard pass down the sideline from Bortles midway through practice. …

*Rookie defensive back Quenton Meeks had a pass defensed in coverage on rookie wide receiver D.J. Chark Jr. midway through practice. …

*Tight end Niles Paul caught a 15-yard pass from Bortles. …


This came from wide receiver Marqise Lee, who caught a 50-yard pass from Bortles in 11-on-11 work while being covered closely by cornerback Tyler Patmon. Lee had a productive practice, also catching passes of 15 and 12 yards from Bortles.


Defensive end Dawuane Smoot (ankle), nose tackle Eli Ankou (knee) and guard Andrew Norwell (calf) did not practice Tuesday. Marrone said the trio are the only players aside from Fowler and Ramsey not expected to participate in the practices against Minnesota next week.

Offensive tackle Josh Wells worked in individual drills Tuesday, and defensive tackle Taven Bryan (abdominal) and right tackle Jermey Parnell (knee) also were limited to individual work.


*The first-team offensive line on Tuesday appeared mostly to be left tackle Cam Robinson, left guard Chris Reed, center Brandon Linder, right guard A.J. Cann and right tackle William Poehls for a third consecutive day. Parnell and Norwell had been working with the starters throughout camp before missing Thursday's preseason opener with injuries. Josh Wells started at right tackle against New Orleans and Tyler Shatley started at left guard.

*Patmon worked at cornerback with the first-team defense with Ramsey out of practice.
