Injury limits Ace Sanders to one day of minicamp practice

The Jaguars have a compelling and intriguing class of draft picks.  Several have made news this weekend for good reasons.  One has drawn attention because he suffered an injury during the first practice of the team’s rookie minicamp.

Receiver/punt returner Ace Sanders, drafted by the Jags in round four, suffered on Friday what has been described both as a “minor groin injury” and an “abdominal strain.”

Sanders didn’t practice on Saturday or Sunday.  Coach Gus Bradley called the decision to sit Sanders “more precautionary than anything.”

It’ll be important for the Jaguars to let Sanders fully heal, or the injury could linger into training camp and beyond.  All too often, a muscle pull that happens to a rookie early in offseason workouts hangs around because the player is anxious to prove himself.

    It rained the whole time so that might have something to do with it.

    Ace was a great player down here at USC this sounds like him pushing himself too hard

    Was he hurt trying to find Snowflake and Dan Marino?

    Hopefully Ace can stay in one piece. He is a dynamic player and a dynamic personality. Will be a fan and media favorite.

    MJD will love Ace. Finally someone he can call Shorty.

    The Jags must have had the best draft in the history of football. I’ve seen about four articles now about Jags draft picks, and how amazing they are. Were there any other teams that drafted?

    Anyone named “ace” “flash” “colt” or “buck” will ALWAYS fail in the NFL.
