Luke Joeckel has said that he feels ready to play ahead of the 2013 NFL season.
The 21-year-old told the team's website: "I feel good, I feel ready to go. Having these muscle strains, you feel like you shouldn't be out because it's not like a bone sticking out.
"My dad told me, 'I never want to see you laying on the field and I never want to see you have a tear unless a bone's sticking out, or blood's gushing out of your body', so, it's hard to sit out with an invisible muscle strain.
"As many reps as I can get is going to be great for me. This is a little bit of a setback, but I don't think it will affect me too much as long as I take great reps in practice these next two weeks in practice. I think I'll be mentally and physically ready by week one."
Joeckel signed a four-year contract with the Jaguars in June.
