Camp Snapshot: Day 7

JACKSONVILLE — The pads stayed on and the intensity increased.

It’s game week around the Jaguars — preseason game week, anyway — and Monday’s Day 7 practice marked the second straight day of full-padded work at Jaguars 2022 training camp.

It gave Monday a decidedly energetic feel.

But with the Jaguars’ preseason opener out of the way, one of the team’s most vocal executives said Monday he’s not too concerned about playing time this week.

“We’re going to get this third preseason game where we’re kind of half-assed; I feel like it’s more than enough,” Jaguars cornerback Shaq Griffin said shortly after an hour and 55 minutes of practice in 86-degree temperatures that felt like 94. Jacksonville Episcopal School Knight Sports Campus.

Griffin said he hopes to play the series Thursday when the Jaguars play the Las Vegas Raiders in the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio.

Offensive coordinator Press Taylor said a playing time has not yet been determined.

“We’re continuing to have a conversation about who’s playing and how much everybody’s playing and what we want to do from that standpoint,” Taylor said before Monday’s practice.

“We have our list of questions. We want to see how those guys do in certain situations. You kind of walk the fine line. Obviously we want to give our guys enough opportunities to play and do things well. I want to see a guy in that situation. Can he do it against somebody, who doesn’t he know?

“You massage every little situation to get as many answers as you can about all these guys and give them the best chance to play well.”

Coverage of Griffin and Taylor’s availability can be seen on jaguars.com and Jaguars Media on Monday.

After appearing to struggle at times during Day 22 of camp on Sunday, the Jaguars offense appeared more energized Monday morning with several top plays by tight end Evan Engram, linebacker Christian Kirk, quarterback Trevor Lawrence. and running backs Travis Etienne Jr. and Snoop Conner.

Monday’s practice, the longest of the 22nd camp, was a competitive affair that included full-court 11-on-11 work, red-zone drills and extensive one-on-one scrimmage involving the offensive and defensive lines.
