Through the last week of training camp practice, Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Josh Allen has gotten a heavy workload in practice. Allen, the team’s star pass-rusher who is the future of the defense, was always going to see a lot of action in August, but it has also been necessitated in recent weeks by injuries to fellow defensive linemen.

Adding to the situation has been the fact that first-round pick K’Lavon Chaisson has been dealing with “a minor hamstring issue” since Aug. 12. Chaisson has been working to the side at practices, as well as working with Allen after practice, but when it comes to reps during the dog days of summer camp, it has been all Allen so far.

“I think we’re getting close, so hopefully by the end of the week. He’s doing walk-throughs, doing a lot of stuff like that and obviously it’s just the on-field stuff,” Head Coach Doug Marrone said about Chaisson on Monday. “And we feel we’ll get a good indication [Tuesday] when we test him, and we feel like we’ll have him later in the week.”
