Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Gabe Davis and defensive lineman Arik Armstead are both expected to be ready for the start of training camp.

Head coach Doug Pederson provided updates Monday for the team's major offseason additions, who are both recovering from knee injuries.

Davis, 25, sustained a PCL sprain during the Buffalo Bills' Week 18 game against the Miami Dolphins last season. He did not play in Buffalo's two postseason games.

Davis signed a three-year, $39 million contract with the Jaguars in March and is expected to help the team replace the departed Calvin Ridley, now with the Tennessee Titans.

A fourth-round pick in 2020, Davis caught 163 passes for 2,730 yards and 27 touchdowns in 64 games (47 starts) in four seasons with the Bills.

Armstead, 30, signed a three-year, $51 million contract in March after nine seasons with the San Francisco 49ers.

Armstead is recovering from offseason surgery to repair a torn meniscus. He played through the injury as the 49ers advanced to Super Bowl LVIII.

A 2015 first-round pick, Armstead has 33.5 sacks, 88 quarterback hits and 302 tackles in 116 games (97 starts). He tallied five sacks in 12 starts during the 2023 regular season.
