Bucs-Jaguars joint practices filled up

2 practices filled up

For Bucs fans planning on an impromptu trip up to Jacksonville for the team's joint practices against the Jaguars on Wednesday and Thursday, hold on a minute.

The Jaguars announced Monday that the two practices are already at capacity, with free tickets distributed to registered fans, and no room for walk-up attendance at either practice.

The practices are scheduled for 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. both days at the practice fields adjacent to Everbank Field. The Jaguars say tickets are still available for Saturday night's game with the Bucs — on the secondary market, they're selling for as little as $16 on and

The Bucs have only one more home practice open to the general public — an Aug. 24 joint practice with the Browns next week, which is still a normal open practice without any registration or free tickets.

Going fast

The Bucs sent an e-mail to fans stating that their Oct. 2 home game against the Broncos has joined a Nov. 13 home game against the Bears as being sold out for individual single-game tickets, so admission is only available through season tickets, five-game miniplans and the secondary market.

Familiar faces

Just as four members of the Bucs coaching staff used to work in Jacksonville, there are several Bucs ties on the Jaguars' staff. Head coach Gus Bradley was the Bucs' linebackers coach from 2006-08, offensive coordinator Greg Olson was a Bucs assistant from 2008-11, quarterbacks coach Nathaniel Hackett got his start as an offensive quality control coach with the Bucs from 2006-07, and tight ends coach Ron Middleton was a Bucs assistant from 2004-06. The most recognizable: Longtime Bucs defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin is a Jaguars defensive assistant.

  1. Bucs journal: Kicker Nick Folk has up and downs against Jaguars


    JACKSONVILLE — If the Bucs had hoped for a drama-free night in their kicking game, they'll have to wait another week.

    Bucs kicker Nick Folk celebrates one of his two made field goals against the Jaguars, but he also misses a field goal and has an extra point blocked.
  2. Bucs top Jaguars behind strong first half



    There is a reason why the air in Tampa Bay is filled with playoff talk. If Thursday night's 12-8 Bucs preseason win over the Jaguars is any indication, it's also going to be filled with footballs thrown by quarterback Jameis Winston.

    Doug Martin gets the Bucs’ only touchdown  on a 2-yard run, squeaking past linebacker Telvin Smith in the first quarter. He has five carries for 30 yards.
  3. Rays journal: Archer has strong outing, with two mistakes

    TORONTO — Two pitches RHP Chris Archer didn't execute are the ones that stood out Thursday as Josh Donaldson hit them out of the park. But the two solo home runs aside, Archer turned in a sterling outing that went atop the pile of good pitching the Rays keep wasting.

  4. Tim Tebow continues wowing fans as he wraps up bay area games


    CLEARWATER — Tracey Fritzinger has seen Tim Tebow play baseball a few times this year. The 40-year-old St. Petersburg resident went to two of his games against the Tampa Yankees, along with Joy, her little sister from Big Brothers Big Sisters of America.

    St. Lucie Mets outfielder Tim Tebow, middle, hangs out in the dugout during Thursday night’s game against the Clearwater Threshers at Spectrum Field, the last of St. Lucie’s eight-day trip to the Tampa Bay area.
