Jags Wired: Denard Robinson

There were things Gus Bradley didn’t like Friday. That’s expected in a one-sided loss, even a loss in a preseason opener, but Bradley said a day later there were positives to take from his first game as Jaguars head coach, too, most notably the play of the two lines. Each unit had something to prove entering training camp. And each stood out at times in a 27-3 loss to the Miami Dolphins Friday night at EverBank Field, with the starting offensive line continuing a strong week leading to the game, and the defensive front showing significant pressure on Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill early in the game.
Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said he met with defensive end Jason Babin and wide receiver Justin Blackmon on Saturday to discuss the incident that occurred in the second quarter of Saturday’s 27-3 preseason loss to Miami.Blackmon got into a verbal exchange with Dolphins cornerback Nolan Carroll. When Bradley began to respond to the situation, Babin tried to calm Blackmon down and get him to back up as Bradley was instructing him. Blackmon then reportedly snapped at Babin."It was a lot smaller than what I initially thought," Bradley said.
The Jaguars were without some of their biggest name players on Friday night, including Justin Blackmon and second-round draft pick Johnathan Cyprien; however, both players could return to the team very soon. At a press conference on Saturday, Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley revealed that both Cyprien and Blackmon are probable to return to the practice fields on Monday.
