Jaguars RB Rashad Jennings Getting More Carries?


Maurice Jones-Drew has been the vocal point of the Jacksonville Jaguars offense for a number of years now but concerns regarding his knee may cause the team to feature backup RB Rashad Jennings a lot more than in previous years.

Jones-Drew recently mentioned that his knee is about 80 percent healed which means that you can expect plenty of questions as the 2011 season approaches.

John Oehser of takes a look at what the Jaguars may do to adjust Jones-Drew’s work load.

“Ideally, the Jaguars won’t be as dependent on Jones-Drew this season,” Oehser writes. “It’s likely Rashad Jennings will get more carries during the course of the season, with the idea to take some of the load off Jones-Drew, who will be in his sixth year and who has carried a big load in recent seasons.”

This news more likely a concern for Fantasy Football players than for Jaguars fans as it has been suggested for sometime now that they would have to consider reducing MJD’s usage. Jennings is a serviceable back that should be able to produce as long as the teams offense is capable of moving the ball through the air.
