The Jaguars returned to the practice fields at Alltel Stadium with two practice sessions today. The team did not practice on Sunday following Saturday night's 27-17 home win over the Miami Dolphins in the team's first preseason game.
"I thought we had a solid morning coming out after the first game," said head coach Jack Del Rio. "We were able to get a few guys back that were out last week, which was good. We held a few guys out, preventative, precautionary type things. I'd like to just continue to focus on being better."
Del Rio noted the play of several of the Jaguars' draft selections in Saturday's home win, including fourth-round pick Alvin Pearman.
"He was good. I thought he showed some burst, some vision and some patience setting up blocks. You can look at a lot of different things in the first preseason game. It's always exciting to get that first live look at the rookies that you drafted and brought in. I felt like it was a pretty strong showing across the board. So I'm encouraged by that. I thought it was a good start for the whole class," said Del Rio.
The Jaguars will hold two practice sessions on Tuesday with a 11:00 a.m. session (special teams) that will be opened to the public and a 7:15 p.m. session (pads) that will be closed to the public. On Wednesday, there will be two practice sessions – 10:15 a.m. (shorts) and 4:15 p.m. (pads) – both open to the public.
