Jacksonville Jaguars Training Camp Update

Jacksonville Jaguars second-year left guard Will Rackley left practice on Tuesday with an ankle injury.

Rackley was carted off of the field after having his right ankle rolled up on and was seen after practice in a protective boot and on crutches. He will not have x-rays on the injured ankle once the swelling goes down, so it is unknown how serious the injury is.

The injury should test the Jaguars depth on the offensive line as Rackley was penciled in as the starter at left guard for the Jaguars after starting 14 games there in his rookie season.

No progress with Justin Blackmon on deal

The Jaguars have not had any progress with first-round draft pick Justin Blackmon on getting him to sign his rookie contract and getting him in to training camp.

Blackmon is the only draft pick to remain unsigned. The main issue between the Jaguars and Blackmon seems to be adding language into the contract that would protect the team if Blackmon has another run-in with the law. Blackmon was arrested for DUI earlier this offseason, his second alcohol related arrest.

The longer Blackmon’s contract issue forces him to miss training camp, the farther he will be behind once he finally reports.

Roster Moves

The Jaguars placed defensive back Reggie Corner on the injured reserve list after he tore his ACL in practice on Saturday. He was replaced on the roster by defensive back Trumaine McBride who played with the Jaguars in the final game of last season.

The Jaguars also released defensive back T.J. Heath on Tuesday. Heath played in five games for the Jaguars last season after being signed as an undrafted rookie last offseason. He was replaced by veteran defensive back Leigh Torrence who has played in 73 NFL games in his seven-year career.
