Jaguars placed RB Storm Johnson on the active/NFI list.

Johnson missed some OTAs due to a back injury, but the Jags don't have to disclose the injury that's now keeping him out. It's also possible Johnson reported out of shape and couldn't pass his physical. A seventh-round draft pick in 2014, Johnson is on the roster bubble behind T.J. Yeldon and Denard Robinson.

Jaguars fifth-round WR Rashad Greene is a favorite for punt return duties.

Incumbent returner Ace Sanders was dumped two weeks ago. Greene's ability to fill a slot role and help a dormant punt return game makes him a great bet to stick on the final roster. He'll battle Tandon Doss and Bryan Walters at camp.

The Jaguars' offense will feature several two-tight end formations.

OC Greg Olson has no intention of putting Julius Thomas in a three-point stance and asking him to hold the edge. That's Marcedes Lewis' job. Olson will instead play to Thomas' strengths, splitting him off the formation to supplement an inexperienced wideout group. Still, Thomas' seventh-round ADP is steep for a player who's put up most of his career stats via red-zone looks from Peyton Manning.

Marqise Lee might sit out practices early in training camp to manage his balky knee.

Lee missed the entire offseason program and finds himself as the No. 3 wideout behind Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns. He's expected to be cleared for training camp, but will have his reps managed.
Jul 23 - 9:16 AM

Marqise Lee (knee) is expected to be ready for the start training camp.

Lee was held out of minicamp and most of the offseason program due to a knee issue. The Jaguars will limit his reps, but he should be close to fully healthy. Lee enters camp as the No. 3 receiver behind Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns.

Jaguars running backs coach Kelly Skipper said the "impressive thing" about T.J. Yeldon is that he "picked up the offense quickly."

Running back is the easiest position for a rookie to learn, especially for one coming out of Alabama's pro-style NFL factory. It's still encouraging to hear a coach talk up a rookie's knowledge of the playbook. Yeldon is going to start Week 1 and will secure a majority of three-down work with a solid camp. Denard Robinson and Toby Gerhart have been moved to the background.

Jaguars second-year CB Aaron Colvin "stood out consistently" during the offseason program.

A torn ACL suffered in the Senior Bowl prevented Colvin from playing early his rookie year, but he recovered in time to make six appearances late in the season. Now completely healthy and up to 197 pounds, Colvin should take a big step forward as a sophomore. He is the favorite to win the Jaguars' first-team slot corner job in camp.

Jaguars DT Sen'Derrick Marks (ACL) is optimistic he'll be ready for the season opener September 13 against Carolina.

"I think we're coming along with it," said Marks at his youth camp earlier this week. "I’m going to be pretty ready for it." Marks is six months removed from surgery. He finished with PFF's ninth-highest pass rushing grade among defensive tackles last season. With Dante Fowler done for the year, getting Marks ready for Week 1 will be a top priority for Jacksonville.

Jaguars GM David Caldwell says Blake Bortles suffered from "dead arm" as a rookie.

Bortles spent time late in the season on the injury report with a shoulder issue, and Caldwell says it gave way to a "dead arm" phase, a la a pitcher in baseball. It's not something you typically hear about in football, but we suppose it could happen to a rookie. By nearly every account — including Caldwell's — Bortles has improved his mechanics this offseason. A dual-threat who even the Jags admitted needed a "redshirt" year before taking over for an ineffective Chad Henne, Bortles has the ability to take a big step forward in 2015.

Jaguars WLB Telvin Smith is expected to remain in an every-down role.

Smith was a full-time starter from Week 12 on last year. Despite playing at 218 pounds, he graded out positively against the run over 723 snaps. Paul Posluszny is locked in opposite Smith in nickel packages.
Jul 1 - 7:07 PM

Paul Posluszny remains a three-down middle linebacker.

Posluszny will be 31 in October and has plenty of severe injuries on his resume. But the Jags aren't backing off, meaning he'll be a fine IDP target once again. Posluszny is averaging a gaudy 9.73 tackles per game in his last 38 outings.

The Florida Times Union projects Rashad Greene as the Jags' top slot receiver.

The 5'11/182 Greene won't be asked to win on the outside. The refined route runner will work the middle of the field in new OC Greg Olson's scheme, but won't see much volume. Greene is behind Allen Robinson, Julius Thomas, Allen Hurns and Marqise Lee on the target totem pole.
Jun 29 - 8:54 AM

The Florida Times Union projects Marqise Lee as the Jags' No. 3 wideout entering camp, behind Allen Hurns.

Lee's rookie year started with a nagging hamstring issue and ended with some disappointing on-field performances. Then he missed most of the offseason program due to a knee issue. Lee will have ground to make up if he's going to beat out Hurns for the right to line up opposite rising stud Allen Robinson in two-wide sets. We want more upside in our late-round fliers.
Jun 29 - 8:50 AM

Jaguars TE Clay Harbor missed most of OTAs due to a calf injury.

Injuries have often plagued the athletic yet underperforming Harbor. He'll compete to be Julius Thomas' backup at training camp.
Jun 29 - 8:47 AM

Denard Robinson is expected to sub in for T.J. Yeldon "to begin certain possessions."

Yeldon has already been named the starter and three-down back. But the Jags aren't going to give him Le'Veon Bell/DeMarco Murray treatment, meaning Robinson and Toby Gerhart will have roles. Robinson projects for 4-7 touches per game plus kick return work out of the gate.
