Jamal Agnew participated in the Jaguars 2022 minicamp at TIAA Bank Field last week – and considering where he was late last season, that's a good place for the veteran wide receiver/returner, John Oehser of the Jaguars official website reports.

"I'm pretty much right on track, way ahead of time," he said.

Agnew, who signed with the Jaguars as an unrestricted free agent last offseason, was perhaps the team's biggest big-play threat in 2021. He turned in the three longest plays of the season before sustaining a hip injury that ended his season in a November loss to the San Francisco 49ers.

He began practicing in the Jaguars' non-padded practices last week, and quarterback Trevor Lawrence said Agnew has looked "great" since returning.

"It's good to have him back out," Lawrence said last week. "He's been kind of working his way up, taking it slow. There's no reason to rush it right now. I know kind of what he can do."

Agnew said he is progressing weekly in his return with no setbacks. And while a hip injury is not as common in the NFL as, say, a knee or ankle injury, Agnew said he felt no unusual anxiety over the injury or his return.

"I wasn't too nervous," Agnew said. "I feel like God always has a plan and things happen for a reason. It was just a matter or staying positive. No one wants to be out for the season. Obviously you're going to have bad thoughts, negative thoughts, but it was just a matter of staying positive and drowning those negative thoughts out with positivity."
