Linebacker Myles Jack had a tough introduction to the heat and humidity in Florida where he made the rookie mistake of coming to practice wearing a long-sleeved shirt. He soon ditched the sleeves.

The Jaguars website has a video practice report on Jack.

As the long football-less summer continues, many magazines are rolling out their preview coverage to pass the time.

In Athlon Sports’ Pac-12 preview, the magazine is high on UCLA, projecting the Bruins to win the Pac-12 South with a 7-2 record.

In its full UCLA preview, Athlon Sports named a favorable Pac-12 schedule (i.e. UCLA won’t play Oregon nor Washington this season), 12 returning starters and Josh Rosen as reasons why the Bruins are the team to beat in the Pac-12 South.

Schedule for team media events is as followed: Continue reading
