Jacksonville Jaguars rookie James Sample to miss 10-12 weeks -
Jacksonville Jaguars rookie safety James Sample is expected to miss 10 to 12 weeks with a broken right forearm, an injury that occurred during last Thursday's workout and that Sample described as "flukish".

Jonathan Cyprien and Sergio Brown learning and excelling together -
With the loss of rookie James Sample to a broken arm, most would expect the Jacksonville Jaguars safety unit to be in peril. That said, while Sample is rehabbing the injury, his teammates are excelling on the practice field. Veterans Johnathan Cyprien and Sergio Brown have formed quite the tandem during practice.

The Jaguars don't have a QB controversy for the first time in five years -
The Jacksonville Jaguars have just wrapped up two weeks of organized team activities (OTAs) and for the first time in five seasons, there's no argument as to who the starting quarterback will be. It's hands down Blake Bortles, and by all accounts he looks like a much improved player over the course of the two week practices.

Rookie Michael Bennett still getting rave reviews at OTAs -
The football headlines on the First Coast have mostly revolved around injuries to Jacksonville Jaguars rookies. However, one of the team's draft picks is earning plenty of buzz in the locker room and on the field. Defensive lineman Michael Bennett was a sixth round pick of the Jaguars last month and has since earned the respect of the coaching staff and his peers.
