Jaguars defensive finish Yannick Ngakoue reported to practice Sunday and will play this season on the final year of his rookie deal, ending his holdout.
The group tweeted a video that showed him walking toward the practice field and head coach Doug Marrone was pleased to regain one particular of the Jacksonville defense’s crucial pieces.
“Happy to have him back and prepared to go,” Marrone stated. “We’re excited. He’s prepared to go. He’s in good shape and we’re all with each other.”
Marrone didn’t anticipate needing to bring Ngakoue up to speed.
“Yan’s generally been in good shape, prepared to go,” Marrone stated. “He’s an anxious guy. He does not like taking it that way. When he’s prepared to go, he desires to go all the way. That is just how he is and how he’s wound.”
