New Jacksonville Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey doesn't want to the give the opposition any more than he has to about his players' injuries.

And if his players let something slide, they'll be $10,000 lighter according to a report by Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union.

Mularkey told players Thursday night at training camp's opening meeting that if they talk to the media about specific injuries, the team will fine them.

"Anything I know about a guy, anything I know is hurting on him, any comment he makes will play into how they attack a team or a position," Mularkey said. "I just don’t think it’s anybody else’s business. ... Right now we’re really not in a position where I don’t feel free to talk about them because I feel pretty good about our team right now. But I will be the only voice."
