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.

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
