Jaguars rookie receiver Allen Hurns impressing Gus Bradley with his maturity

Five receivers were selected in the first round of May's draft. None are having as productive a preseason as Jaguars undrafted rookie Allen Hurns, a former Miami standout. Actually, no receiver in the NFL can touch Hurns' preseason output. The 22-year-old Hurns has caught 13 passes for a league-best 230 yards and one touchdown through the first three preseason games. He's averaging 17.7 yards per catch. Hurns has 45 more receiving yards than any other player in the league. read more

Super Bowl champion Seattle claims center Patrick Lewis off waivers from the Jaguars

Center Patrick Lewis would seem to be an interesting prospect. He was highly rated in high schoo, recruited by Texas A@M and finished his career with 48 consecutive starts where he played in the same line with Jaguars’ 2013 top pick Luke Joeckel. He switched from guard to center after his sophomore season. Yet at 6-1 and 311 pounds, he wasn’t considered a top NFL candidate. He wasn’t drafted last year and spent time with three teams as a rookie without appearing in a game. He was inactive for 14 games. read more

Jaguars notebook: Josh Scobee's status for opener uncertain due to quad injury

Jaguars notebook: Josh Scobee's status for opener uncertain due to quad injury

Kicker Josh Scobee’s quad injury means the Jaguars will face an unusual dilemma when they pare the roster to the regular season limit of 53 players Saturday. Since Scobee said he won’t know by Saturday if he will be able to kick in the regular season opener Sept. 7 at Philadelphia, the Jaguars have to decide whether to also keep kicker-punter Kasey Redfern on the roster or gamble that Scobee will heal in time to kick. read more
The future may be next year for Jaguars rookie QB Blake Bortles if everything goes as planned

The future may be next year for Jaguars rookie QB Blake Bortles if everything goes as planned

Get a good look at Jaguars rookie quarterback Blake Bortles during Thursday night’s preseason finale against Atlanta at EverBank Field. If Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell and coach Gus Bradley fully execute their plan, it will be the last time Bortles plays in a game until 2015. The Jaguars aren’t expecting the draft’s third-overall pick to contribute in 2014 with veteran Chad Henne locked in as the starter. For Bortles, the situation is not unique. He redshirted at Central Florida before becoming one of the top players in program history. read more

While teammates put on helmets and pads for practice, the pair got up at 5 a.m. every day for 1.5 hours of treatment. Both watched from the sidelines as the other early enrollees and student-athletes practiced.

Jaguars may get a cameo role on "Hard Knocks'' when they play the Falcons Thursday night

If the Jaguars are involved in some big plays against the Atlanta Falcons Thursday night, they may get an cameo appearance on “Hard Knocks.’’ The Falcons are being featured on “Hard Knocks’’ this year and while the show focuses on them, the producers occasionally show it when they give up a big play. And if they make a big play against the Jaguars, that is also likely to be shown. It will be interesting to see if they show the pools at EverBank Field. The fifth and final episode featuring the game against the Jaguars will air a week from Tuesday night on HBO. read more
