Yeldon tops the 100-yard mark in Jacksonville loss
Sunday’s overtime loss to the Indianapolis Colts had its share of frustrating moments for the Jacksonville Jaguars, but the play of rookie running back T.J. Yeldon continues to be a bright spot.
Jacksonville’s second-round pick in last April’s draft, Yeldon topped the 100-yard mark for the first time in his young professional career, running for 105 yards on 22 carries.
Yeldon big day included a 36-yard gain in overtime, but the Jaguars’ drive stalled and the team was forced to punt.
“When you can run the ball for two, three, four yards, you just need to stay patient with it,” Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley said of Yeldon’d performance, per the Florida Times-Union.
The 36th overall pick in the draft, Yeldon has 259 yards rushing on 70 carries through the first four games.
