New Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey said he will fine players $10,000 if they talk about their injuries with the media.

"Anything I know about a guy, anything I know is hurting on him, any comment he makes will play into how they attack a team or a position," Mularkey told Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union. "I just don’t think it’s anybody else’s business. … If I feel like it’s going to jeopardize us or compromise us, I will not talk about specific injuries. Right now, we’re really not in a position where I don’t feel free to talk about them because I feel pretty good about our team right now. But I will be the only voice."

Mularkey told Ganguli about an opposing team’s starting quarterback telling the media he wasn’t playing, but his coaches then backtracked.

"They put themselves in a bad position," Mularkey said. "… I knew the backup quarterback ran a no-huddle. So we practiced the no-huddle even though the starter didn’t run it. We practiced the no-huddle based on his comment. And they came out in the no-huddle just like we thought and we shut them right down."

Mularkey began his first training camp with the Jaguars this week without the presence of RB Maurice Jones-Drew, who is holding out for a new contract, and rookie WR Justin Blackmon, who has yet to sign a deal.
