The Jaguars will not be allowed to hold their final two organized team activities next week after a player complained that the practices were too intense.

The NFL Players Association and the NFL Management Council decided that the remaining practices, which were scheduled to take place next Monday and Tuesday, will be forfeited.

"The NFL Management Council and the NFL Players Association have resolved a complaint by the Players Association against the Jacksonville Jaguars concerning violations of the Collective Bargaining Agreement's offseason workout rules," the NFL said in a statement that was released Thursday morning. "It was determined that the Jaguars violated the rules concerning the intensity and tempo of drills conducted on the club's organized team activity days ("OTA days").

"As a result, the Jaguars will forfeit a week of their offseason program (June 21-25). Jaguars players are not permitted to be at the facility on those days, but will be paid for the sessions. The club cannot reschedule the cancelled days."

The Ravens, Raiders and Lions also have been forced to forfeit OTA time for the same reason this offseason.
