Injuries are an inherent part of football but that doesn't make it any less disheartening to see players get hurt. And on Day 9 of Jaguars training camp, cornerback Tyson Campbell went down and stayed on the ground for several minutes after colliding with teammate Christian Kirk.

Campbell was eventually taken to the sidelines to be evaluated and was diagnosed with a concussion, per Michael DiRocco of ESPN.

Campbell eventually returned to the field but was wearing no pads or a helmet. And while the Jaguars have depth at cornerback, missing Campbell for significant time would be a huge loss. The good news is that there's still ample time for him to recover in time for the season opener, which is why the Jaguars should be in no rush to thrust him into action until he's 100 percent.

Also, head coach Doug Pederson met with the local media before practice started. He touched on several topics and gave updates on other injured players. Here's what stood out in his presser Saturday.

3. Injury updates on Jaguars training camp:

Andre Cisco has been dealing with a hamstring injury for a few days. While he hasn't missed practice, he's been limited. Doug Pederson called him not 100 percent yet when he met with the local media, "Cisco is good. He's back but I wouldn't put him at 100 percent. We're still gonna monitor and make sure he's good to go."

Pederson also provided an update on rookie right tackle Anton Harrison, who has a shoulder injury. He had a brace on Sunday practice, via Jamal St. Cyr of News4Jax, and was slated to get a bit more work.

"Anton, you're gonna see him a little bit more incorporated today. We're still progressing him slowly, so we'll get him a couple of reps here and there with the first unit," Pederson said.

Regarding Shatley, Pederson says he had atrial fibrillation (AFIB/abnormal heartbeat) Wednesday but got treatment right away.

Shatley was back at practice Saturday but was a limited participant. Before his absence, he was getting reps at left guard with the first team. During his recovery, Blake Hence has taken his place in the lineup.
