JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Chad Bumphis was walking through the locker room Monday when he stepped on a piece of cardboard and nearly slipped to the ground.
Bumphis reacted by saying, "Whoa, that was close."
Given what's happened in Jacksonville recently, no one would have been surprised to see Bumphis end up on the sideline with so many of his teammates.
The Jaguars are down seven receivers during organized team activities, playing without both starters, two second-round draft picks and a few others. The injuries forced Jacksonville to sign two receivers off the street in recent days just to have enough bodies to get through practice.
Coach Gus Bradley says "it's tough" because "you don't want to tailor practice so far back that you affect 83 other guys."
