The Jacksonville Jaguars went through two practices today as they
continued their second full week of training camp.
Head coach Tom Coughlin said the team will not do specific
gameplan preparations for Friday night's preseason opener against
the Carolina Panthers. "We're not going to spend any time on the
opponent for the first preseason game. We'll try to go over
personnel with them some, but Carolina has a new staff and we
might have some idea what they'll be doing, but it's just speculation.
So basically we're just taking the first seven or eight days of what
we've installed and we'll use that in the first game."
Offensive tackle Mike Webster was waived on Wednesday, leaving
the Jaguars' roster at 86, one below the team's limit. Webster, an
undrafted rookie from the University of Kentucky, had been signed
The team will go through a closed walk-through on Thursday and
will face the Panthers at 7:30 p.m. Friday at ALLTEL Stadium.

Other Coughlin comments:
(on the competition on the offensive line) "It's up and down.
There's been some improvement from certain individuals, and there
are others I've been a little bit disappointed in. I'm still concerned
about where Ben Coleman is (coming back from a knee injury).
We're trying to get him back out here so he can take advantage of
the two-a-day opportunities. But it's a very slow process."
(on Gary Walker) "I'm very happy with Gary Walker. He's done an
outstanding job. He's been very obvious in our drill work."
(on Seth Payne) "Seth's been doing a good job, but we had to put
some restrictions on him (because of his shoulder rehab). We still
have some restrictions on him. But he's in there and he's been
rolled up and rolled on, penetrated, made plays. He's done really
well with it. I'm starting to get some confidence in the fact that he'll
be able to work his way up towards the number of snaps and be
ready to go."
