Grant is likely to see an increased workload for the Jaguars in 2018, although his role may remain undefined until training camp, Mike Kaye of reports.

The release of veteran Chris Ivory this offseason leaves the Jaguars without their primary No. 2 running back from the 2017 season. T.J. Yeldon should be the main beneficiary from Ivory's departure, but Grant also should absorb some of the snaps that don't fall to lead back Leonard Fournette. In limited touches a season ago, Grant demonstrated some big-play ability, totaling 248 yards on only 30 carries (8.3 average). With Yeldon likely to occupy a third-down role for Jacksonville due to his aptitude as a pass blocker, Grant could serve as a change-of-pace option. Training camp should provide more insight into both players' outlooks, and if Grant can showcase improved pass protection, it would go a long way towards securing more responsibilities on offense.
