NFL: Jags don't expect Jones-Drew to report

Posted: July 29, 2012

The Jacksonville Jaguars have placed running back Maurice Jones-Drew on the reserve/did not report list, an indication they don't expect their star player to show up to training camp anytime soon.

The Jaguars signed fullback Will Ta'ufo'ou to take his spot on the 90-man roster.

Jones-Drew is holding out in hopes of getting the team to renegotiate his contract. He has two years remaining on a five-year, $31 million deal. The team says it has no plans to renegotiate.

Tannehill signs

Quarterback Ryan Tannehill, the first-round pick of the Miami Dolphins, agreed to a contract, according to reports by ESPN and The Dolphins held their first full practice Friday.

Twitter blackout

The Cincinnati Bengals won't be tweeting about training camp or anything else for the next few weeks.

Coach Marvin Lewis has banned players from using the social media outlet during camp. He imposed the ban after consulting team leaders about the crackdown. So far, they're following it.

Lewis is particularly wary of players talking about injuries on Twitter. Rookie cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick confirmed his knee injury with a tweet earlier this week, before camp began.

A worried Jaguar

Jacksonville linebacker Clint Session is preparing for the worst.

After sustaining three concussions last season and spending the last seven months recovering from them, Session said Saturday that it's "probably too late" for him to avoid long-term effects associated with head trauma.

"I think that is probably something that is already probably going to happen," Session said. "I can't control that. Probably too late for that right there."

Session had three concussions in 2011, the first in the preseason and then two more against Cleveland on Nov. 20. He stayed in the game after the first one against the Browns and didn't tell team doctors. He was placed on injured reserve two days later.

"I kind of knew it was pretty serious, but I just figured, I wanted to win," Session said. "It was a big game. We wanted to win the game. I wanted to contribute. I didn't want to just leave the game."

Session reported to training camp Thursday but hasn't been on the field.
