The Jacksonville Jaguars held two practice sessions today at the practice fields at Alltel Stadium with the players in full pads for the evening practice for the second consecutive day. In the morning practice, several Jaguars took part in the special teams session, including third-round pick Clint Ingram.
"I will give it all I've got on special teams. That's the first thing that I need to know to get me on the field," said Ingram who is also competing for a starting spot at outside linebacker. "The mentality that I have is to give it all I've got and go as hard as I can. If I can take a step forward on the practice field every day and keep progressing, then everything else will take care of itself."
Camp will continue on Wednesday with two practice sessions at 10:15 a.m. (shorts) and 4:15 p.m. (full pads) on the practice fields at Alltel Stadium.
