RB Yeldon inactive again for Jaguars

Published Dec. 28, 2015 12:31 a.m. ET

For the second week in a row, the Jacksonville Jaguars were without leading rusher T.J. Yeldon, as the rookie sat out of Sunday's 38-27 win over the New Orleans Saints with a knee injury.

Yeldon, Jacksonville's 2015 second-round pick, was one of seven inactive players for the Jaguars on Sunday. He suffered a sprained MCL in the team's 51-16 win over the Indianapolis Colts on Dec. 13.

Denard Robinson started once again in place of Yeldon and ran for 20 yards on six carries. Jonas Gray, who was signed off the Miami Dolphins' practice squad on Dec. 15, led the Jaguars in rushing with 31 yards on five carries.

Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley said he was impressed with Gray's performance in his first opportunity with the team.


Via the Florida Times-Union:

“I liked him,” Bradley said. “In the second half, we said, ‘Let’s give him some more opportunities and see what he can do.’ He added a little bit of burst.”

In addition to Yeldon, Jacksonville's other inactive players Sunday were linebacker Telvin Smith, cornerback Dwayne Gratz, center Luke Bowanko, wide receiver Bryan Walters, defensive end Chris Smith and tight end Nic Jacobs.
