Jonathan Cyprien injury: Jaguars safety returns to practice

Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jaguars have removed Jonathan Cyprien from the NFI list as he returns to practice.

Jacksonville Jaguars safety Jonathan Cyprien has been removed from the non-football injury list (NFI) and can return to the practice field with his team on Monday. The Jaguars second-round pick has been sidelined with a hamstring injury since the start of training camp and hasn't practiced since OTAs.

As long as Cyprien is a full go for practice all week, he is expected to make his debut in the starting lineup for the Jaguars against the New York Jets on Saturday evening.

Without Cyprien in the lineup, the team started Chris Prosinski on Friday against the Miami Dolphins and he was picked on a little, giving up a 22-yard touchdown to Dustin Keller in which Prosinski was turned around in the endzone.

Cyprien should be able to shore up the other safety position, and while he'll make some rookie mistakes, I'm not sure he'll be hurdled very often.
