Jaguars players get injury designations prior to training camp
The Jacksonville Jaguars announced both left tackle Cam Robinson and Marqise Lee would start training camp on the PUP list.
Following the final practice of the Jacksonville Jaguars mandatory minicamp, head coach Doug Marrone told the media present that Cam Robinson and Marqise Lee would be part of training camp, but it was not known when they would be.
On Tuesday, the team announced the left tackle out of Alabama and wide receiver from USC would start camp on the PUP list and would be eligible to return when they are cleared to practice. Both are rehabbing knee injuries suffered from last season. Lee went down in the last game of the preseason while Robinson’s season ended in Week 2 against the New England Patriots.
Both players are considered important parts of the new offense that is being installed by the team’s new offensive coordinator John DeFilippo. The roster officially begin training camp on Thursday outside TIAA Bank Field.

"“Marqise Lee and Cam Robinson won’t be practicing when training camp begins,” writes John Oehser of Jaguars.com“The same is true of rookie running back Ryquell Armstead, with the Jaguars on Tuesday announcing that the trio will be on the Physically Unable to Perform list when 2019 Jaguars Training Camp begins Thursday.”"
Robinson, who was the team’s second-round draft pick out of Alabama in 2017, was the first domino to fall on the offensive line that was decimated by injuries. The team used four players at left tackle alone. After a progressive rookie season, the Jaguars staff hoped he would take the next step in providing a solid shield for the quarterback.
His injury and the others around him are part of the reason Jacksonville surrendered 53 sacks last season. It’s also one of the reasons the running game did not have a 100-yard rusher last season.
"Per Oehser, “The Jaguars on Wednesday also placed rookie offensive lineman Donnell Greene and fifth-year linebacker Jake Ryan on the team’s Active/Non-Football Injury list. The Jaguars now have 90 players on their 90-man active roster.”"
The players will be allowed to return to practice once they have been cleared by the team’s medical staff.
"By definition, “Players on PUP and Active/Non-Football injury lists may attend meetings, but may not practice – and they also count toward the team’s 90-man roster during the preseason and training camp.”"
