JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jaguars running back Richard Murphy has gotten to know a few of his teammates really well while bumming rides to training camp this week.

That's the upside of having his truck stolen from outside his apartment over the weekend.

The downside is that he also lost four championship rings from his college days at LSU that were inside the 2010 Dodge.

The truck was taken between Saturday night and Sunday morning. It was found several miles away sitting on concrete blocks. Among the items missing were 30-inch rims and tires valued at $15,000, his 2007 national title ring, his 2007 Southeastern Conference championship ring and his 2006 Sugar Bowl ring. The fourth ring was a title ring issued by the school.

Murphy says, "It can't really frustrate me now. ... I've got to make the roster. I've got stuff to pay for."
