The Jacksonville Jaguars held two more full practices today on the Ferrell Practice Fields.
³Our concentration wavered in and out, but both sides of the ball got some things done,² said head coach Tom Coughlin. ³We had a really good 9 on 7 drill, and a little work in the red area.²
With training camp practices beginning to lead into a four-game schedule of preseason games, Coughlin said, ³You try to stay on schedule and pick what you¹ll use from what you have installed.²
Rookie offensive tackle Jason Dukes continued to miss practice with a sprained left ankle. He was the only player out with an injury during the morning practice. In the afternoon, defensive tackle Mike Thompson suffered a contusion of his left shoulder, and defensive end Jeff Lageman had a mild hyperextension of his left knee. The status of both players will be updated on Wednesday.
The Jaguars will practice again at 8:40 a.m. and 3:20 p.m. on Wednesday. They have a walk-through scheduled for Thursday, the day before they host the New York Giants in the season opener for both teams. There is no availability for the media on Thursday.
