Jaguars' T.J. Yeldon: Could be stuck in committee again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell said he still envisions Chris Ivory and Yeldon (ankle) as being options 1/1A in the backfield, ESPN.com reports.

Yeldon and Ivory entered 2016 in a committee, with both ultimately held back by a combination of injuries, poor running and the general ineffectiveness of Jacksonville's ground attack. It sounds as if the team's early plan is to take a similar approach in 2017, hoping that better health and better blocking will lead to improved results. Should the committee shape up as expected, Yeldon would get most of the passing-down work and some of the carries, while Ivory would handle more carries along with short-yardage/goal-line work. The Jaguars might also consider involving Corey Grant and/or a draft pick in the potential committee, which would potentially dilute Yeldon's involvement even further.

Jaguars' T.J. Yeldon: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Yeldon (ankle) has been placed on IR by the Jaguars, NFL.com reports.

With Yeldon unavailable for the Jaguars' season finale against the Colts and the team's backfield dealing with injuries to Denard Robinson and Chris Ivory as well, the Jaguars claimed RB Daryl Richardson off waivers from the Steelers on Monday.

Jaguars' T.J. Yeldon: Suffers ankle injury Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yeldon is questionable to return to Saturday's game against the Titans due to an ankle injury, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

Yeldon suffered the injury on his second carry of the day. If he's unable to return, Chris Ivory will handle the majority of touches afforded Jags runnings backs in Week 16.

Jaguars' T.J. Yeldon: Tallies 62 yards of total offense Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yeldon gained 28 yards on eight rushes and secured five of seven targets for 34 yards in Sunday's 21-20 loss to the Texans.

Yeldon took a back seat in carries to backfield mate Chris Ivory, but widely outpaced him in the passing game, seeing seven targets to Ivory's one. Yeldon was effective through the air, unsurprising given the fact that he's now tallied 50 receptions on the season. With Ivory now recovered from his hamstring injury, the workload between the two should be divided fairly evenly over the final two games of the season.

Jaguars' T.J. Yeldon: Could see smaller workload with Ivory active
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yeldon's Week 15 workload could be impacted by the active status of Chris Ivory.

While the Jaguars have not yet officially confirmed that Ivory will play, he was removed from the injury report Friday and sounded as though he intended on taking the field after missing the previous two games with a hamstring injury. "I'm taking it slow right now," Ivory said Friday. "I got some work this week and I've been pretty comfortable for the most part. I know once I see more bodies moving and live action I'll be fine." In the absence of Ivory, Yeldon has carried the ball a combined 31 times over the last two weeks, in addition to racking up 10 catches for 58 yards. The Alabama product hasn't reached the end zone since Nov. 6 against Kansas City, however, as the Jaguars' offense has continued to struggle behind shaky play from Blake Bortles. Yeldon figures to serve as the primary back, especially on passing downs, Sunday against Houston, though Ivory's expected return could mean fewer carries for Yeldon in short-yardage situations.
