Day 2 Notes and Observations – Jacksonville Jaguars News

JACKSONVILLE – The Jaguars went through their second practice of 2017 Training Camp Friday.

The Jaguars practiced for about two-and-a-half hours in 90-degree temperatures on the practice fields adjacent to EverBank Field. Wide receiver Allen Robinson and safety Barry Church spoke to the media afterward; Head Coach Doug Marrone is scheduled to speak to the media following practice Saturday.

We spoke to the star of the day, wide receiver Keelan Cole, who is trying to make the team as an undrafted rookie from Kentucky Wesleyan. He caught three long passes Friday, and we’ll cover that later in this story.

We also caught up with guard Tyler Shatley and cornerback Doran Grant, the latter of whom is working with the starters early in ’17 camp. We’ll cover that later in this story, too.

Church, meanwhile, discussed practicing with the Jaguars for the first time since signing as an unrestricted free agent from Dallas in March. He missed the on-field portion of the offseason with an injury, and said Jaguars training camp practices under Head Coach Doug Marrone are tougher than what he experienced in recent seasons with the Cowboys.

“It is a lot more demanding – a lot more periods,” Church said. “I think we had about 18 today. Back on my old team, we probably had about 12 or something like that. Like coach said, there are a lot of new players in here. The coaching staff is trying to figure out who fits where.

“We need a lot of periods and we need all that to get the chemistry down. We are just working on that and getting ready.”
