The Jacksonville Jaguars will open up voluntary workouts on Tuesday with a veteran orientation camp so new head coach Mike Mularkey can get a feel for some of his players. There are a few players who are not going to make it to the camp however, as they're all recovering from injuries.

All six players are dealing with injuries or recovering from surgery. Aaron Kampman is still recovering from a knee injury that saw him sidelined for much of last season while Rashean Mathis is recovering from a torn ACL. John Chick is recovering from a torn patella tendon and is still in a brace and on crutches according to Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union. Linebacker Paul Posluzney is recovering from offseason shoulder surgery and Ashton Youboty is recovering from a hamstring injury that saw him placed on IR. Defensive tackle Tyson Alualu finally had surgery on his knee that had been plaguing him for his first two seasons and is still recovering.
