The Jacksonville Jaguars have been without two key young players Justin Blackmon and Jonathan Cyprien in training camp so far, but according to Alfie Crow of bigcatcountry.com, on Monday both players were taken off the team's PUP list and practiced for the first time in camp. The two young additions come as good news to a team that's been struck with a number of injuries as of late. Cyprien is the team's first overall pick in the second round and was highly regarded coming out of Florida International. He's expected to be an impact player at safety this year, but because of a hamstring injury, Monday will be his first practice with the team in camp. As long as the hamstring doesn't flare up this week, all reports say that the rookie safety should make his team debut on Saturday against the New York Jets. There has been a lot of news of late about second year receiver Justin Blackmon, but he hasn't even participated in a training camp practice yet. Like Cyprien, Blackmon was added to the active roster on Monday. He was still recovering from groin surgery he had in the offseason and failed his physical at the start of camp. Blackmon's presence at wideout will be a welcomed site for the Jaguars. Their other starting receiver, Cecil Shorts, has already missed time because of a strained calf. Both receivers should be ready for the team's second preseason game on Saturday. Despite the good news that Blackmon is back at practice, the young receiver has some ground to make up. He will already miss the first four games of the season because he violated the league's substance abuse policy, but he also got himself into a bit of trouble with Coach Bradley over the weekend. Blackmon was inactive for Friday night's preseason opener, but he still made headlines from his banter with Dolphins cornerback Nolan Carroll. Blackmon even turned on some teammates when they tried to tell him to knock it off. The situation was resolved when Coach Bradley asked Blackmon to be escorted to the locker room before the half. Blackmon has a ton of talent, but he'll have to keep some of these behavior issues under control if he wants to be an impact player on the Jaguars' offense. The good news though is he's healthy and ready to compliment third year receiver Cecil Shorts. Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt Looking for fantasy football advice?
