Marks was a participant during individual drills for the first time this offseason after suffering torn triceps during November of the 2015 campaign, leading to an injured reserve designation. "It felt good just getting back, trusting the process, going out and not having any hiccups," Marks said Friday regarding his return to the practice field. The 6-foot-2, 294-pound veteran also believes he'll be a full participant for training camp, which begins in late July. He's expected to receive a lighter snap load throughout the 2016 regular season regardless, one reason being the addition of Malik Jackson in free agency.
Marks is coming off a torn triceps that limited him to just four games last year, when his season didn't start until October due to a torn ACL suffered in 2014. Considering Marks posted a career-high 8.5 sacks that season, the Jaguars are understandably taking caution to ensure he returns to full health when needed this season, thus explaining his absence from OTAs.

It's been a rough 11 months for Marks, who managed 8.5 sacks and 44 tackles last season, but then suffered a torn ACL in Week 17. He subsequently made just four appearances this season, recording six tackles, three passes defensed and zero sacks. The good news is that he'll be further removed from the ACL injury next season, and the torn triceps should be healed before training camp.

Marks' injury is likely season-ending, compounding a frustrating 2015 campaign for the defensive lineman. After a career-high 44 tackles and 8.5 sacks last season, a knee injury contributed toward Marks making just four appearances this term, resulting in only six tackles and no sacks.
