The Jacksonville Jaguars are onto Day 3 of their mandatory mini camp — the final day of organized team activities until training camp next month.
You can catch the recap of Day 1 here and Day 2 here but to give you a tl;dr — Nick Foles has steadily improved after appearing a little rusty at the beginning, the team isn’t backing down from backing Yannick Ngakoue, a couple of key members of the offense are being held out for precautionary measures, and Jalen Ramsey isn’t going to get a contract extension this year.
What’s standing out from Day 3 of mandatory mini camp? Follow along with everything Jaguars by checking out our live blog throughout the day.
11:37 AM: A.J. Bouye and Jalen Ramsey know what they’re doing.
It may not look like much but this is how AJ Bouye and Jalen Ramsey spend their “rest periods” of #jaguars practice...by working on their footwork on the side. It’s the small things that allow those guys to play at a high level on Sundays. @wjxt4 @Sports4Jax pic.twitter.com/CnMdaBSX2K— Brian Jackson (@WJXTBJackson) June 13, 2019
10:58 AM: Andrew Norwell is again a no-show. Training camp awaits, big man.
#Jaguars working on the side: LT Cam Robinson, DE Josh Allen, LB Jake Ryan and RB Ryquell Armstead. Don’t see LG Andrew Norwell.— Phillip Heilman (@phillip_heilman) June 13, 2019
10:44 AM: Well, practice wasn’t cancelled but at least they’ll get to be indoors. No real chance of rain in downtown Jacksonville but the humidity has to be awful.

10:41 AM: Todd Wash giving newly hired offensive coordinator John DeFilippo some props. Not mentioned, however, is the fact that the defense isn’t facing a potato at quarterback.
10:40 AM: Good to see. This team needs depth at defensive end. Yannick Ngakoue and Josh Allen are a superb trio, but who else is there?

10:39 AM: There is no bigger question mark on the defense than linebacker. Myles Jack is one of your base three. Newly acquired Jake Ryan is probably another. Who’s the third? Will Quincy Williams step up as a rookie? Leon Jacobs? Who?
10:35 AM: Defensive coordinator Todd Wash is addressing the media before practice. If you miss the live press conference you can catch the replay here.

10:27 AM: When half the league is cancelling Day 3 of mini camp and you really want that liquid lunch.
Just joking - practice still on - I hate the Jags media people. (hahaha - just messing around). Practice is still on though - in my opinion it should be cancelled.— Brent Martineau (@BrentASJax) June 13, 2019
