Hyde had two carries for seven yards and failed to catch either of his targets during Sunday's 23-13 loss to Denver. Hyde had 11 touches during the season opener but played only 14 offensive snaps Week 2. The 30-year-old is unlikely to receive any worthwhile opportunities as long as starting tailback James Robinson remains healthy.
Hyde rushed nine times for 44 yards and caught both his targets for 14 yards in Sunday's 37-21 loss to the Texans. Hyde led Jacksonville's backfield with 11 touches Sunday, though only three of those came in the first half. James Robinson started at tailback but received only five carries as the Jaguars trailed from the start and were losing 27-7 heading into halftime. Hyde played only 34 percent of the offensive snaps and shouldn't be expected to see more playing time than that most weeks if Robinson remains healthy.
Hyde gained five yards on his only carry in Sunday's preseason win over the Cowboys. After James Robinson handled backfield duties the first two series of the game, Hyde checked in and got the third possession. Trevor Lawrence spent most of the drive slinging the ball to Laviska Shenault, but Hyde did punch the ball into the end zone from the three-yard line, only for his TD to be wiped out by a holding penalty. The veteran will be the No. 2 back behind James Robinson with Travis Etienne (foot) out for the year, and Hyde's fantasy value will come from what early-down and goal-line looks he can steal from Robinson.
Hyde had three carries for seven yards and caught his lone target for negative-one yard during Monday's preseason game against the Saints. James Robinson received another start, and Hyde played 15 offensive snaps during the first half while serving in the No. 2 role. Despite the opening depth chart listing him as a co-starter, the veteran tailback wasn't expected to open the season with a significant role for the Jaguars, but that could change after 2021 first-round pick Travis Etienne suffered a midfoot sprain during Monday's contest. The severity of the injury remains unclear, but Hyde is poised to remain as Jacksonville's No. 2 running back behind Robinson should Etienne be unavailable for the Sept. 12 season opener at Houston.
Hyde had two carries for four yards and failed to catch his lone target during Saturday's preseason loss to Cleveland. Hyde is listed as a co-starter at running back alongside James Robinson on Jacksonville's first unofficial depth chart, and the pair combined to play only 13 offensive snaps Saturday. Despite his current position as a co-starter, Hyde shouldn't be expected to open the season in a significant role, with Robinson and rookie first-round pick Travis Etienne likely to handle most of the backfield work.
