Fred Taylor skips Jags' offseason program to work out on his own. Then during the conditioning test, he injures a hamstring.


Maybe he and Eddie Moore can get a card game going.

Jaguars running back Fred Taylor began training camp Saturday the same way he did last year -- nursing an injury.

Taylor strained his right hamstring during a conditioning drill Thursday and was less than full speed when Jacksonville opened camp. It was hardly the start Taylor wanted, especially after spending all of last season recovering from a serious knee injury (http://www.srch-results.com/lm/rtl3.asp?si=77&k=knee%20injury).

"I really wanted to come out the first day and give the fans something to ooh and ah about," said Taylor, who has been plagued by injuries the last four preseasons. "It's kind of sad that the timing is so screwed up. That's why it's so hard to understand. Somethings in life you can't figure out why they happen. They just do. I don't know why it happened. I was rested and I felt great."

Taylor injured his leg muscle while nearing the last of 20 striders, which are 50-yard sprints. He was required to perform the conditioning test because he skipped most of the team's voluntary, offseason workout program.

Instead of running and lifting weights in Jacksonville, the 30-year-old franchise running back opted to train near his home in South Florida.

He said the all-in-one training program at Perfect Competition helped him get in the best shape of his career. He weighed in at 224 pounds, 10 less than last year, and believed added leg strength would help him avoid recent leg injuries.

Wait Taylor got hurt... yeah didn't see that coming. Poor guy is never healthy. I really want to see M. Drew play. I think he will be good

The Muck Bowl baby. Possibly the best high school game every single year.

I think it's too bad, I really like how Taylor runs. The first guy never brings him down. He's just snakebit. I am glad it happened before my Fantasy Draft though.
