With two preseason games down and two left to play, the Jaguars returned to the practice field today with an afternoon session.
Several injured players returned, including DE Tony Brackens (knee) and WR Darnay Scott (shoulder).
"Brackens was doing football drills, so we'll see," said head coach Tom Coughlin. "The trainer and the doctor have to tell me he's ready to go. That's their decision. Hopefully he'll come out of this without any swelling and soreness and be ready to go. Scott is working, though he's non-contact right now. He should play this weekend, I hope. If he gets through a couple of days without re-injuring himself, he will."
Coughlin said that WR Micah Ross, a Jacksonville native who is rehabbing a knee injury, suffered swelling last week when he started running. "Maybe he can go tomorrow. He was out here trying to go," Coughlin said.
On Monday, the Jaguars will finish their 2002 training camp with two practices at 8:40 a.m. and 3:20 p.m. on fields two (middle field) and three (western-most field). Players are available from 11:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. at the Radisson, and Tom Coughlin will hold his news conference following the morning practice. Monday's practices will be the final ones open to the public.
On Tuesday, Tom Coughlin will hold his news conference at 12:00 noon, the Jaguars' locker room will be open to media from 12:15 to 12:45 p.m., and practice will be at 1:40 p.m.
