Jarett Dillard's anticipated return to the practice field when the Jacksonville Jaguars opened camp last weekend was sidetracked before it began when he was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform List (PUP) as camp opened.
Rather than being the result of any lingering effects from the broken ankle that ended his rookie campaign in 2009, his placement on the list was the result of a stress fracture in his left ankle that occured some time in June. Players who are placed on the PUP are not allowed to practice with the team, but can return after their injury is healed.
Reports indicated the move was more precautionary than anything. via text, Dillard indicated he hopes to be able to practice next week.
