Johnathan Cyprien, Justin Blackmon to begin camp on PUP list

Four players will not be available to practice when the team opens camp on Thursday.


Four Jaguars will be out when the team opens training camp on Thursday, including 2012 first-round pick Justin Blackmon and 2013 second-round pick Johnathan Cyprien, although none of the four injuries are considered too serious.

On Tuesday, Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley listed Blackmon, Cyprien, guard Stephane Milhim and wide receiver Taylor Price as the four that will start training camp on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list, ruling them ineligible for participation in practice.

Cyprien strained a hamstring last week and although it isn't considered a serious problem, the team will be cautious about the rookie's first NFL training camp. He is expected back next week.

Blackmon is recovering from offseason groin surgery and, although a timetable for his recovery was not given, Bradley said that the second-year receiver is progressing quicker than expected. Blackmon will miss the first four weeks of the regular season after violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

During training camp, players can be taken off the PUP list at any time, but must be pulled off the list by final cuts or else they must stay on the list for at least six weeks.
