Gus Bradley: Jaguars QB Blake Bortles took 'big step' today | members.jacksonville.com
Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said today that first-round quarterback Blake Bortles took a "big step" in the team’s sixth OTA workout. "His poise out on the field today was excellent," Bradley said. "He had a comfort level. You could just see his poise was there. I think, in his mind, he should think that today was a big step for him in how he handled it. … Now he’s just got to stack it up."

Jaguars rookie WR Marqise Lee says he's not likely to return until late next week | members.jacksonville.com
Jaguars rookie receiver Marqise Lee missed his third consecutive practice as he recovers from an ankle injury.

2014 OTAs: Out in force … again
Shorts, the Jaguars’ fourth-year wide receiver, had been asked early this week what he expected from Thursday’s 2014 open-to-the-public organized team activities practice. Could it have the same energy, the same interest, as the rest of a decidedly interest-heavy, fan-friendly Jaguars offseason? Shorts had answered cautiously, joking he didn’t want to jinx it and have only two players’ grandmothers show. Well, Cecil … this wasn’t your, er, grandmother’s OTA. Then again, this is no normal offseason around the Jaguars, either.

Then he spent extra time with offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch and quarterbacks coach Frank Scelfo. Bortles bounced back with a solid day on Tuesday and then had his best day in a Jaguars uniform on Thursday.

There was a nice crowd at the practice fields this morning for the first OTA open to the public.  Not quite as large as the first rookie camp session, but close.  Folks wanted to come out to see the entire roster on the field to have a look at the new guys, and to see how the rest of the roster is faring as they prepare for the 2014 campaign.
