Jags to Work Out Punters Tuesday After Turk’s Shank

The Jaguars are taking the first step, albeit a small one, toward fixing their problems.

Coach Jack Del Rio said he will work out punters Tuesday, two days after Matt Turk’s 22-yarder helped the Bengals hand the Jaguars a fourth consecutive loss.

Turk also had punts of 32 and 23 yards in the second half of Sunday’s 30-20 loss. He raised his arms to mock fans who loudly booed him after one of his poor punts.

“When you have seven punts on the day and one of them is good, that’s not going to work for you,” Del Rio said Monday.

Turk, who ranks near the bottom of the league in gross and net punting, was only part of Jacksonville’s problems against the Bengals. But he could be the scapegoat for a game the Jaguars (1-4) controlled much of the day.
