His team was practicing against the best quarterback in National Football League history. "I thought that was a really good job by his part", Bortles told NESN.

Monday morning, Hurns went down with an injury during the joint Jaguars-Patriots practice in Foxborough.

Here's another evaluation: Even Marrone should admit the Jaguars will benefit from facing Brady and Co.

"It's a great opportunity to practice against the defending world champs and see where we're at", said Jaguars linebacker Paul Posluszny, via the Boston Globe.

Heading into Thursday's preseason opener against the Patriots, Bortles said the Jaguars' offense is "definitely" making progress. The Jags gave him chances to succeed this year, by drafting a workhourse running back in Leonard Fournette instead of investing in a quarterback of the future with the fourth pick, when they could have had any one of this year's class they wanted. Other players who are nicked up were present at the practice, and they worked on the lower practice field on rehab-type stuff. Bouye played at Central Florida, Butler at West Alabama.

There are few things that players, coaches, fans and media agree on.

"B-Cooks, Cookie - he's a great energy around us", Edelman said. Brady was 6-of-9 passing during seven-on-seven. Gronkowski had a rare drop.

Brady went 3-of-3 on each of his next two segments and then 0-of-2.

The Cooks touchdown was the practice's most dynamic play and will make the Patriots lethal this year. And Gipson had to be aware of the post pattern. Two nights later, he threw three interceptions (plus two more in 7-on-7) in the first padded workout.

Cornerbacks Jalen Ramsey and Aaron Colvin remain the Jags two players on the PUP list. "We have a great deal of respect for their coaches and their players".

The Jaguars were scheduled to watch video of the practice late Monday afternoon ahead of Tuesday's 9:30 a.m. practice.

"I'm itching to get ready for (Tuesday)", Bouye said. We're still learning, it's still training camp. That's the NFL and we went against one of the best offenses in the league.

In between that night and Tuesday, there were several good performances by Bortles - 20-of-21 on July 31, 17-of-32 on August 1 and 17-of-22 last Friday. That's what these practices are for, to see if you can carry over from the normal practice.
