The Jaguars will likely be without two of their prized rookies until the start of training camp.
In the first week of voluntary OTAs first-round pick, Josh Allen suffered a knee bruise. He hasn't participated in practice since.
On Tuesday fifth-round pick RyQuell Armstead suffered a "slight hamstring injury" according to Jaguars' head coach Doug Marrone.
Marrone indicated on Thursday morning that both would likely be out until the start of training camp. It's wise not to rush these rookies back before they're ready. But they will be missing valuable reps throughout the Jaguars' upcoming mandatory minicamp.
Josh Allen is expected to be a pass rush specialist during his first season in the NFL and will likely be featured when the Jaguars' lineup in the nickel. RyQuell Armstead is also expected to be a factor as a rookie. A virtual clone of Leonard Fournette, Armstead will likely be the Jaguars' second back if he can recover from his hamstring injury.
