Jacksonville Jaguars Roundup

Message from ex-Jaguars offensive tackle Richard Collier hits home, Terrance Knighton says | jacksonville.com

Before the Jaguars’ Thursday practice — their last organized team activity practice before Memorial Day weekend — they heard from former Jaguars offensive tackle Richard Collier. Collier was partially paralyzed and had part of a leg amputated after suffering multiple gunshot wounds early one morning in 2008. He spoke to the team about choices. "We had a speaker this morning talking about doing things the right way when you’re out on the streets at night," Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey said. "… He did an outstanding job, and I thought it was very impactful for our football team to hear his story."

Jaguars DT Terrance Knighton takes another step toward being cleared | jacksonville.com

For the first time since having eye surgery last month, Jaguars defensive tackle Terrance Knighton was out at practice with his helmet on doing some drills. When we saw him walking off the field yesterday, his eye seemed slightly swollen. But it doesn't appear to be a concern for Knighton whose participation has steadily increased this week. He was still working off to the side, with fellow recovering defensive lineman John Chick, rather than with the rest of the defensive line. But this marks progress.

Deception and excitement

The excitement is palpable, with quotes to support it. Clint Session used the phrase "Greatest Show on Turf" recently, and though the veteran linebacker did add the caveat that the show was being compared to last year, his point was clear: The Jaguars’ offense? The one that ranked last in the NFL last season? It may be early, but it looks better. A lot better. Don’t just ask Session. Ask Derek Cox. Or Dawan Landry.

Inside the Jaguars, 05/24

Two weeks in, Blaine Gabbert is making progress. That’s the opinion of Jaguars Head Coach Mike Mularkey, who addressed Gabbert’s off-season progress Thursday following the sixth of 10 scheduled organized team activities practices at Florida Blue Health and Wellness Practice Fields adjacent to EverBank Field. Mularkey said he is particularly impressed with the second-year quarterback’s ability to pick up an offense that is being installed as OTAs progress.
