Jacksonville Jaguars Roundup

Jaguars linebacker Daryl Smith quietly among NFL’s best

He’s quiet, low-key and often overlooked. If the last part bothers him, Jaguars veteran outside linebacker Daryl Smith rarely lets it show. Not to the media, not to fans and apparently, not even to teammates. "He’s definitely underrated," Jaguars defensive end Jeremy Mincey said. "What I love about him is he doesn’t care." Smith, of course, has been answering questions about being overlooked as long as he can remember – "that’s just me," he said – but here’s what’s even more important about the nine-year veteran from Georgia Tech: He’s good. Really good.

Inside The Jaguars, 8/27

As Mike Mularkey sees it, the Jaguars remain in training camp mode. The Jaguars by NFL standards had a physical training camp, and Mularkey – the team’s first-year head coach – said as far as he sees it, the camp portion of preseason doesn’t really end until the final preseason game Thursday. On Monday, the physical nature of camp continued with a second padded practice in as many days, and Mularkey said the physical approach has nothing to do with him being in his first season.

Ross looks like opening-day starter for Jags - AFC South Blog - ESPN

Aaron Ross is in line to start at left cornerback for the Jaguars on opening day at Minnesota, with Rashean Mathis as the nickel back, coach Mike Mularkey told the team’s press corps Monday. But it’s not that Ross has won a battle between two veterans which was set up for the winner to start and the loser to play the nickel. Mularkey said Mathis, recovering from a torn ACL suffered in November, can still use more time.
