After taking Tuesday off, your Jacksonville Jaguars continued training camp practice this morning. The team now looks to begin preparations for Saturday’s preseason opener versus the Dallas Cowboys.

Coach Pederson previously confirmed that the majority of starters will likely play at least a few series in the first preseason game.

Former Jaguars coach Tom Coughlin was also in attendance today:

Practice Takeaways:

The team shed their pads today, with a lighter day physically. The starting offense initially began the day working on the far field against air (no defense), then later joined the first team defense. With that said:

● Trevor Lawrence had another sharp day, highlighted by a deep touchdown to Jacob Harris in 7-on-7s. Both Andre Cisco and Darious Williams were in coverage (seemingly a busted coverage somewhere).

● Chris Claybrooks had what may have been one of the best interceptions of camp, bringing the ball in one-handed. It came on a long, sideline pass thrown by CJ Beathard (really hoping the team releases that video).

● DaVon Hamilton had a great (no-pads) day with multiple interior pressures and a near interception of Lawrence in the backfield. Lawrence was attempting to dump the ball off to Travis Etienne.

● Tim Jones committed a tough drop on a deep, wide-open, would-be touchdown. He later followed that up with another uncontested drop. Tough day for Jones.

● Josh Pederson wrapped the day up with a touchdown catch of his own.

Injury Report Updates:

● Tyson Campbell (concussion) returned to practice in an orange/non-contact jersey as he makes his way through the protocol.

● Tyler Shatley (abnormal heartbeat) is out versus the Cowboys with no set return timeline.

● Anton Harrison (shoulder) is good to go and will play against the Cowboys.

Special Teams:

● Brandon McManus made a 50-yard field goal (against a rush) that would have likely been good from 60-62 yards out.

Depth Chart Items of Note:

I also thought this was a pretty nice nugget dropped by Jaguars defensive line coach Brentson Buckner that seemed to be missed by many.

The team will be back for practice tomorrow morning, kicking off at 8:35 am.
