Good day of practice can&39;t wait for the scrimmage tomorrow.

Great day of work. Gotta keep the drive to improve everyday. Your either getting better or getting worse.

Schedule

The Jaguars will hold a scrimmage at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday at EverBank Field.  The event is free and open to the public, and is the last practice that is open to the public this year.  Fan Appreciation Night kicks off at 6:15 p.m.

The last word

 "Just practice now; put my pads on and go out there and practice. I think if you put me in a workout outside of football, I'll smash it, but if you go out there on the football field it's totally different. It's like one of those things that if I was outside playing basketball, I wouldn't be able to just get on the football field and do football.  You have to be in football to get into football shape and I'm excited to finally get in there and run plays and get my legs back to where they need to be and my leverage and everything like that and to be out there and really working with my teammates and I'm excited about that."
