On Day 3 of Jacksonville Jaguars training camp, players, coaches, and fans enjoyed a night under the lights at the practice fields adjacent to TIAA Bank Field.
The one sight that most fans will remember from Saturday evening’s training camp session is the image of Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Marqise Lee walking off the field with the help of trainers as it appeared the fifth-year wide receiver suffered an injury.
We have heard this before more than once.
Per John Reid of the Florida Times-Union, “WR Marqise Lee left practice with an injury that appeared to be his left shoulder after landing awkwardly after cornerback Tyler Patmon forced a pass breakup”

It was the second injury to the Jaguars wide receiving corps as Donte Moncrief did not participate in practice because of an ankle injury he sustained in Friday’s session.
Lee and Moncrief are vying to be the team’s top pass-catching threat on a roster with no definitive No. 1 wide receiver. Having either one out of action for a significant amount of time could be detrimental to the progress offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett’s pass game plan.
As of writing this story, there was no new information about either of the two players.
Here are a few observations from Saturday night under the lights.
Taven Bryan Shows Off His Strength
In his first time putting on the pads and hitting offensive linemen, rookie Taven Bryan showed he is both strong and powerful. The defensive end beat K.C. McDermott easily in one-on-one drills. Bryan was also able to beat Josh Walker.
The defensive lineman who figures to get lots of playing time at big end this season has a quick first step and a bull rush move that will cause issues for opposing left tackles.
Wynn Impresses With Big Catch
Shane Wynn has spent time on the Jaguars practice squad and active roster. The wide receiver showed he could be a dark horse to make the roster. He and Blake Bortles connected on a deep post route that would have been a touchdown.
Wynn beat veteran safety Tashaun Gipson on the play by running by him on the route.
Grant Runs With Authority
Running back Corey Grant saw plenty of time running with the second unit Saturday night. Will the Jaguars use him more effectively this season?
Grant is ultra quick and could be used as the second option in the running game. The Jaguars plan to use him and T.J. Yeldon more this season. Leonard Fournette will get the majority of the reps in camp and will start once again this season.
Patmon Continues to Play Well
Opportunity is everything for Tyler Patmon. While filling for Jalen Ramsey who is still not with the team because of the birth of his first child, the cornerback has played well.
Patmon forced the break up of the pass intended for Lee, who left the game. Patmon is competing for more playing time at the nickel cornerback slot.
