The Jacksonville Jaguars got some good news on Wednesday morning, as starting safety Johnathan Cyprien has been cleared for practice according to Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union.

Cyprien suffered a concussion in Week 1 against the Philadelphia Eagles early in the second half of the game going up for an interception. Cyprien fall flat on his back, slamming the back of his head on the turf and laid unconscious for a scary amount of time.

Cyprien didn't practice all week leading up to the Washington game and was inactive, but made the trip. Cyprien was also at practice all last week, although stood on the sideline. With Cyprien cleared for practice however, that means he's passed the concussion protocol and should be available for Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts.

The Jaguars defense clearly missed Cyprien in Week 1 after he left the game and he will be a welcomed addition to the defense on Sunday.
