    It’s now official that Jaguars cornerback Aaron Ross, who was signed as a free agent in the offseason to bolster their secondary, will miss a few days of training camp, Vito Stellino of the Florida Times-Union reports. His wife, Sanya Richards-Ross, guaranteed that her husband would get a training camp break by qualifying for the Olympic team Sunday while setting a meet record of 49.28 seconds in the 400 meters at the U.S. track trials in Eugene, Ore. Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey had already told Ross that he can skip some of the training camp sessions to London to watch his wife run for gold if she qualified. When Ross got permission in April, he said, “That’s really huge. It speaks volumes about what they’re trying to preach here. They preach family first and they’re not just preaching it. They’re actually showing it firsthand. It was important to me and they made it happen.’’ Ross said he will only go to watch her run in the finals, not any of the prelim heats. “I want to miss as little time as possible,’’ he said.
