Urban Meyer still in Jacksonville Jaguars’ plans despite building tension

ESPN

As tension builds amid the frustration of a 2-10 season, Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan plans to stay the course with coach Urban Meyer, sources told ESPN on Saturday.

Meyer again has come under scrutiny, with sources confirming an NFL Network report on Saturday that Jaguars wide receiver Marvin Jones recently had to be persuaded to return to the team facility after leaving in response to Meyer's vocal criticisms of the wide receiver corps.

Jones, who stayed outside the team facility before eventually walking back in, also had a heated exchange with Meyer at practice after returning, sources confirmed to ESPN.

There has also been a public dispute about player usage, as franchise quarterback Trevor Lawrence advocated for the Jaguars to use running back James Robinson more. Robinson was on the sideline for lengthy stretches after fumbles over the past two games.
