The Jacksonville Jaguars got back out on to the practice field on Tuesday morning on a nice, cool overcast day for the final day of July. After the team's typical rotation of individual drills and stretching, the team broke into a special teams practice with Bryan Anger lining up to punt. He didn't punt though, instead he threw a touchdown pass.
The ball was snapped to Anger while Jason Spitz snuck out to the right side and caught a pass for a touchdown.
The play was against no defense whatsoever, but it was nice to finally see the weapon in action.
Some more thoughts after the jump, including a much better day from the offense.
- Laurent Robinson and Blaine Gabbert finally appeared to get on the same page at practice today, connecting on quite a few passes including a back shoulder touchdown in redzone drills. Gabbert also hit Robinson on a deep out in 11 x 11 drills about 25 yards down the field, where Robinson ran a perfect route and found himself wide open.
- Gabbert had a solid day of work overall, as did the entire offense rebounding from their horrible outing yesterday. Gabbert followed up his 1-5 with seven scrambled in drills to going 8-11 in 7 x 7 drills including a touchdown. There was another running play where Aaron Ross showed blitz on Gabbert's hard count, which led to Gabbert calling an audible with a running play that went for a big gain to the opposite side of the blitz.
- Despite getting talked to from Gabbert for running a lazy route, Mike Thomas rebounded today and caught virtually everything thrown his way.
- Rookie cornerback Mike Harris keeps getting himself on the field more and more because he just makes plays. Harris found himself working with the first team in nickel a bit on Tuesday.
- The defensive ends had a very good day of practice as Andre Branch had a very good day, even holding up very well against the run. Austen Lane, Jeremy Mincey, and George Selvie also continue to look good, especially Mincey.
- The offense line needs some work, but for much of the day they were working with Eben Britton as the only "starting" offensive lineman running with the first team.
- Will Rackley's potential injury. He was on crutches after practice and will be getting an X-Ray once the swelling goes down.
