Jaguars cornerback Aaron Ross got a couple days off to travel to London to watch his wife compete in the Olympics. Per AP’s Mark Long, who covers the Jaguars and is in London covering the Olympics, after Sanya Richards-Ross won the gold medal in the woman’s 400 meters, Ross told her: "You finally did it, you finally did it, babe. Enjoy the moment." "She worked so hard," Ross said. "All the emotions going through her mind, my mind, her family's mind, everybody that's seen the struggles. It just a great moment right now."
Injuries continue to hit the Jaguars’ offensive line. With starting guard Will Rackley already out 3-to-4 weeks with a high ankle sprain, guard Jason Spitzis now expected to miss 2-to-3 weeks with a sprained foot sustained in Friday’s scrimmage at EverBank Field, Head Coach Mike Mularkey said Sunday. With Spitz and Rackley out, rookie undrafted center Mike Brewster worked at guard in the practice Sunday. "Brewster’s done well since he’s been here," Mularkey said. "He’s probably going to get a little bit more now with the injuries. The coaches trust him."
The NFL coaching profession is a small community so it wasn't surprising that it was personal for Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey when he heard the tragic news about Andy Reid's son Sunday. Garrett Reid, 29, was found dead in his dorm room at Lehigh University where the Philadelphia Eagles' coach was conducting training camp. "I know Andy very well. It's a very sad story,'' Mularkey said. He said he got to know Reid about a decade ago when they coached against each other in the Pro Bowl.
