The Jaguars gathered for practice Sunday inside the team's all new indoor practice facility, located inside Daily's Place. The team prepared for Tampa, whom they play in week two of the preseason. But the Jaguars will not only play the Bucs in their second game of 2017, they'll also practice against the Buccaneers on Monday and Tuesday.
Allen Hurns, who go tangled up with a Patriots defender in practice last week, missed the team's first preseason game. The star WR returned to practice today and will presumably play against the Bucs in week two.
The Jaguars were without Leonard Fournette in Sunday's practice. Doug Marrone told the media that "Leonard has a foot injury and we're just being really cautious with it ... "Let's not take any risks".
Back up running back Chris Ivory also missed practice with an undisclosed injury.
Marqise Lee went down in 7 on 7 drills. He suffered an apparent lower leg injury. Team doctors immediately rushed over to Lee. He placed zero pressure on the injured leg and was placed on a medical cart. Several team mates kneeled next to Lee before he was taken off the field. In a show of solidarity Allen Hurns rode on the cart with Lee as Lee was taken to the locker room. No information is available yet as to the severity of Lee's injury.
On Sunday Blake Bortles struggled with a familiar foe - the pick six. Bortles threw one pick six to Paul Posluszny and one to Tyler Patmon. Bortles simply can't allow that to happen in the regular season. Aside from the inexcusable pick sixes, Bortles wasn't too bad on the day. Marrone talked about Bortles' pitch count after practice and essentially told the media Bortles was given a bit of a rest day.
Chad Henne got some time with the first string offense. Don't look too much into this and please for the love of God don't quote this article saying there is a QB controversy, because there isn't. Whether or not there should be is an entirely different question. Henne did, however, play very well, especially when targeting Allen Robinson.
The most important thing in training camp is to avoid injury. Unfortunately the Jaguars we were not able to do that on Sunday.
