Day six of Jacksonville Jaguars training camp was more of the same. The weather continues to be the story as players go through the grind at the practice fields adjacent to TIAA Bank Field.
The Jacksonville Jaguars had 1,542 fans attend the morning session, watching players who are fighting for roster spots give coaches a little more to think about when it comes down to determining the 53-man roster.
“After a respite from the heat with a rainy Tuesday afternoon practice, the hot conditions returned on Wednesday,” wrote John Oehser of Jaguars.com. “The two-and-half-hour work took place in 91-degree temperatures.”
Here are a few observations from Wednesday’s camp.

DJ Chark showed he could be a big-time target this season. The rookie second-round pick from LSU beat Jalen Ramsey on a pass play for a touchdown. Chark, could be a red zone option for quarterback Blake Bortles, used his size and quickness to get free from the All-Pro cornerback.
Allen Lazard caught two passes from third-string quarterback Tanner Lee. Lazard, a rookie free agent from Arizona State, is hoping to make it to the 53-man roster in a crowded wide receiving unit. The combination had a touchdown in red zone drills.
The trash-talking of the secondary has certainly picked up since Ramsey came back to the team. Cornerback A.J. Bouye talked about it when he met with the media after practice (story to follow later).
Shane Wynn, one of the wide receivers in the mix in camp, catch a long touchdown pass, then immediately grabbed his knee. Wynn walked off the field and returned to practice, returning punts.
Rookie cornerback Tre Herndon had an interception and continues to show progress throughout camp.
