Jaguars OT Josh Wells (thumb) is 100 percent healthy after missing all of 2015.

Wells dislocated his thumb in the preseason, and was placed on injured reserve. A 2014 UDFA, Wells made 12 appearances as a rookie, playing 102 snaps. He's fighting for the Jaguars' No. 3 or 4 tackle job.

Jaguars OLB Dan Skuta's lawyer claims Skuta was actually the victim in an alleged battery last month in Orlando, Fla.

Skuta was arrested on misdemeanor battery charges and released on $500 bond. He claims the story was completely fabricated, and he was the one who was assaulted. "Eyewitnesses will attest that Dan was alongside his girlfriend when this fabricated event supposedly took place," Skuta's lawyer said. "Dan was then struck in the face by one of the women, as is evidenced by his mugshot which clearly shows where he was struck." Skuta has a black eye in his mugshot.

Action News Jacksonville reports Jaguars OLB Dan Skuta was arrested on misdemeanor battery charges June 19 in Orlando.

Skuta was released on $500 bond. In a statement, the Jaguars said they are "aware of the situation" and "are currently gathering more information." Skuta started eight games last season, his first with the Jaguars.

Jaguars OLB Dan Skuta shed 15 pounds this offseason.

Skuta finds himself in the 248-250 range after playing at 265 last season. "We’re playing a little more man coverage and knowing that, I lost 15 pounds," said Skuta. "I just want to be able to run." He's expected to split time at strong-side linebacker and weak-side defensive end.

Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times Union expects undrafted TE Braedon Bowman to make the Jaguars' 53-man roster.

Bowman turned heads by making a David Tyree-esque touchdown catch at OTAs while also contributing as a blocker. "We like him; he’s intriguing to us," said head coach Gus Bradley. "We don’t have a fullback on our roster so what we’re still trying to figure out with Bowman is, can he be the guy that plays the tight end spot and then at times gives us the fullback that we like to incorporate?" Bradley snared 11 catches in 12 games as a senior at South Alabama last season. Nic Jacobs and Ben Koyack are also competing for a spot at tight end.

Hays Carlyon of the Florida Times Union expects Julius Thomas to score double-digit touchdowns this season.

Per Carlyon, Thomas was "nearly unstoppable" at OTAs. Thomas got off to a slow start last year after missing the first month with a broken hand but finished the season strong by nabbing touchdowns in four of his last seven games. Thomas will have no trouble returning TE1 value as long as he stays healthy.

Jaguars signed No. 69 overall pick DE Yannick Ngakoue to a four-year contract.

Jacksonville now has their entire draft class under contract. A third-round pick out of Maryland, Ngakoue reportedly looked good this spring. He should earn a role as a rookie even on a loaded defensive line.

Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell said LT Kelvin Beachum (ACL) has a "very" good chance to be ready for the start of training camp.

The Jaguars have always expected Beachum to return early in training camp, but it now sounds like he might not miss any snaps at all. Signed to replace first-round bust Luke Joeckel, Beachum should easily win the left tackle job in camp if he is healthy. Joeckel could end up at left guard.

The Florida Times Union expects the Jaguars to start Chris Ivory over T.J. Yeldon.

They're certainly paying Ivory like a starter, signing him to a five-year deal worth $32.5 million. Based on OTA reps, beat writer Ryan O'Halloran believes Yeldon is "ear-marked for a regular third-down/fill-in early down role" with "Ivory as the initial starter." The Jags refused to give Yeldon the ball in scoring position last season and may envision him as more of a finesse back. Power runner Ivory is the heavy favorite for goal-line work.

Rashad Greene has been getting first-team reps in the slot.

Greene is ahead of Marqise Lee after splitting time in the slot as a rookie. He doesn’t project for many targets behind Allen Robinson, Allen Hurns, and Julius Thomas. Greene should open the season as the No. 4 pass-game option.

Jaguars first-round CB Jalen Ramsey (knee) expects to be ready for training camp.

"I know I’ll be 100 percent," Ramsey said. "I feel one hundred percent now. So when training camp comes I will definitely be ready." Ramsey missed all of OTAs and is sitting out minicamp. Barring a setback, he'll be fully cleared next month.

Allen Robinson (hamstring) is sitting out minicamp.

It's not a concern for a player who bounced back from a 2014 broken foot to start all 16 games last season. This is the time of year teams exercise the utmost caution with even the most minor of injuries.
Jun 14 - 2:20 PM

Denard Robinson said his playing weight will be between 205-210 pounds this season.

Robinson beefed up last year, playing at 215-218 pounds after beginning his Jacksonville career at 197. This year he's splitting the difference. Shoelace can weigh whatever he wants, but it's unlikely to improve his position on the Jaguars' running back depth chart. He'll open camp as the Jags' No. 3 back while competing with Corey Grant for kick return duties.
Jun 12 - 8:55 AM

Allen Robinson (hamstring) is questionable for minicamp.

Full details aren’t yet known, but it doesn’t sound like a major concern. Robinson’s training camp status isn’t in doubt.
Jun 11 - 4:04 PM

Jaguars first-round CB Jalen Ramsey (knee) was seen running at OTAs on Friday.

It looks like Ramsey is making good progress in his recovery from a torn meniscus. He seemed to be running at close to full speed without any noticeable limp. Ramsey is expected to be a full go for training camp next month. The No. 5 overall pick should start opposite either Davon House or Prince Amukamara when the regular season opens.
