Jaguars Believe T.J. Yeldon Still Has Future With Team 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Sep 27, 2017 7:43 pm

T.J. Yeldon has been a healthy inactive for the Jacksonville Jaguars over the past two weeks, but the team insists they haven't moved on from him.

Yeldon was a second round pick by the Jaguars in 2015.

“We love T.J.,” Doug Marrone said. “We think he’s an outstanding football player. Right now we feel that the guys there [at running back] are doing well and what’s difficult is if we did have more spots on game day, we would put him up there. There’s no doubt about that.

“But it’s very difficult with what we’re trying to accomplish from the standpoint of all three phases to get a jersey on him right now. But the minute that we do have an opportunity where it’s not going to affect any of those three phases or maybe we need it more offensively -- might be a game-plan situation where we want more backs up that week -- we have no issue at all bringing him up.”

The Jaguars had four running backs active each week: Leonard Fournette, Chris Ivory, Corey Grant and fullback Tommy Bohanon.
