Jacksonville Jaguars Roundup

Let's spin around the NFL to see what others are saying about the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Jaguars Notebook: Receiver Tiquan Underwood among cuts |
The Jaguars jumped the gun on making their first roster cut on Thursday. Even though they aren't required to cut from 90 to 80 until next Tuesday, they cut five players to reduce their roster to 85. Among the players departing were wide receiver Tiquan Underwood, the first of the 20 players drafted by general manager Gene Smith to be sent packing.

Young Jaguars safeties fighting for backup spots |
The Jaguars added veteran experience to their starting defensive backfield with safety Dawan Landry, but in the next levels of the position, a youth movement has taken hold of the competition. As the preseason nears its end, the backup safeties are involved in one of the key battles left for the Jaguars.

Ready when needed - Jaguars news on
To Rashad Jennings, opportunity is never a bad thing. So, while there’s little feeling around the Jaguars that Jennings has anything to prove against the Buffalo Bills Saturday night, that doesn’t mean the third-year, second-team running back looks at any game – even a preseason game – nonchalantly.

Shorts showing he belongs - Jaguars news on
Looking at tape, Cecil Shorts didn’t love what he saw. When Shorts, a rookie wide receiver for the Jaguars, went back and watched his first NFL game this past Friday, what he mainly saw was mistakes. He saw a fumble. He saw a route cut off a little too soon here; a pattern not run to perfection there.

Manning, Johnson Helping the Jaguars | August
I know that we've been talking a lot about Peyton Manning on the site lately, so; here's my promise. This is the last time I'll talk extensively about Peyton Manning and the possibility of him missing the start of the regular season. It's a real possibility, and it would help the Jaguars a lot if the Colts were digging out of a hole to start the season

Wait on Miller continues in Jacksonville - AFC South Blog - ESPN
During the lockout, Jaguars GM Gene Smith raved about Zach Miller. In another offense or situation, Miller could be like Dallas Clark, Smith said. Change the offense to suit him and find a way to use that, I replied. After two catches for 11 yards in the preseason opener, Miller missed last week’s preseason game against Atlanta with a knee injury, yet another health issue holding him back. He’s still rehabbing, so he won't make the trip to Buffalo for Saturday's preseason game.

Del Rio on concussions and battle scars - AFC South Blog - ESPN
Defensive end Jeremy Mincey suffered a concussion at practice Wednesday, so he won’t travel with the Jaguars to Buffalo. The injury prompted a discussion about concussions between the local media and Jack Del Rio, who was an NFL linebacker for 11 years. Del Rio said he’s all for increased player safety and awareness of concussions. In no way was he suggesting a guy should attempt to play through a head injury.
