Undrafted Jaguars rookie Josh Wells in the middle of things as Luke Joeckel's backup

Undrafted Jaguars rookie Josh Wells in the middle of things as Luke Joeckel's backup

Luke Joeckel and Josh Wells traveled different roads to get to the Jaguars. Joeckel was the 2012 winner of the Outland Trophy given to the best college offensive lineman. He played only three years in college, then skipped his senior season at Texas A&M because he was considered one of the best offensive tackles in the draft. The Jaguars made him the second pick in the 2013 draft. Wells played five years at James Madison University, counting his redshirt year, after entering school as a walk-on and wasn’t rated high enough to be invited to the scouting combine. read more

Lightning proving good teams sometimes find ways to win in messy ways

These early results reveal, if nothing else, that the Tampa Bay Lightning should be built for the long haul. They're far from a finished product, and yet, they're capable of welcoming opponents' momentum into Amalie Arena and choking it before the visitors leave town.

Jaguars notebook: Luke Joeckel (concussion) expects to play vs. Bengals on Sunday

Cleared for individual practice work Thursday, Jaguars left tackle Luke Joeckel (concussion) hopes to play Sunday at Cincinnati. “That’s the plan,” he said. “I have to go through the protocol, but I anticipate being back.” Joeckel has a few more hurdles to clear: He must be symptom-free after the individual on-field workout and then he’ll advance to a full practice Friday afternoon and, finally, a series of final tests before the Jaguars leave town on Saturday. read more
