Quick Bytes: The daily digest of everything you need to know about the Jacksonville Jaguars (and other things).
: The Jaguars have four significant injuries to follow during training camp: defensive end Jeremy Mincey (wrist), safety Chad Nkang (wrist) and tight end George Wrighster (knee). This means that James Wyche probably gets the final roster spot at DE, someone else will have a chance to step up on special teams, and the tight ends behind Marcades are a muddled mess of potential and injuries.
: The Jaguars Jason Taylor saga is over. He's now a member of the Washington Redskins after they suffered the worst opening of training camp in NFL history. Nothing scares me more than early training camp injuries, they ruin teams. No matter what happens during camp, I want nothing more than our roster to make it to opening day without getting hurt.
:ESPN did a good thing. Paul Kuharsky wrote the most fair-minded and accurate article on the state of the Jaguars and ticket sales that I've ever seen in the traditional media. I'd love to think that he stumbled across some of the articles I've penned here on the subject, but I don't have the ego to think like that.
: This week is full of excitement as the Jaguars end their offseason hibernation and begin actual football-like-behavior. It's been a rough few weeks, filled with nonsense like Matt Jones, Cocaine, and talks of LA and ticket sales, but it's about to turn into Oklahoma drills, roster cuts, and talking about practice.
: I'm going to go out on a limb and say that Derrick Harvey and Quentin Groves will sign contracts this week. The Jaguars typically announce one at a time, thus giving the player (and their agent) a day to enjoy the media cycle, so that's something to look out for. Word on the street is that Harvey is close, though there's nothing official to confirm that. As soon as I know something concrete, it'll be posted here.
Enjoy your Monday, I'll be back throughout the day with updates and other things!
