The Jacksonville Jaguars opened up training camp with six players on the PUP list, including defensive tackle Terrance Knighton, guard Uche Nwaneri, and tight end Zach Miller. Knighton was expected to enter camp on the list, but there was some uncertainty on when he would be cleared to come back to practice given the severity of the injury he sustained. A few weeks ago, it was reported that Knighton was ahead of schedule and might make it back in time for training camp. It appears he has, as he has passed his physical and been cleared to practice, according to Adam Caplan.

The other two players, who were a bit of surprise at being on the list in Nwaneri and Miller have also been cleared to return to the practice field.
