There seems to be some problems in Jacksonville.
The Jaguars were involved in “a very heated argument” after their 20-7 loss to the Texans on Sunday, according to a report from the NFL Network.
Jacksonville defensive end Calais Campbell was seen by media members holding back Yannick Ngakoue, according to The Athletic. He “threw off” Campbell and yelling was heard coming from the room, that report says.
Jags just briefly opened up the doors to the locker room before shutting them. Calais Campbell was holding back Yannick Ngakoue, who threw off Campbell. Lots of yelling coming from the room.

The loss was the Jaguars third in a row and they’ve fallen in their last two games by a combined score of 60-14.
“Frustration’s a part of the game, and we’re emotional people and this is an emotional game,” Campbell said after the game (via the AP). “At the same time, I think these guys, this group of guys, we have a different kind of heart to us … Stacking losses, that’s not who we are, that’s not what we want to be.
“But it is who we are ’cause that’s what’s going on right now. I do believe that we will get it fixed. We have no choice but to get it fixed.”
Jacksonville quarterback Blake Bortles threw for just 61 yards and fumbled twice before he was replaced by Cody Kessler early in the third quarter. Kessler completed 21 of his 30 passes for 156 yards with a touchdown and an interception in the loss.
The loss dropped Jacksonville to 3-4 on the season. It will face the Eagles in Week 8 action next Sunday.
