JACKSONVILLE Jacksonville Jaguars Jerseys 2019 , Fla. (AP) —n nearly two years, a frustrating stretch that forced him to work harder and be more patient.He always felt like he would get another shot. He didn’t expect it to be this week.But with Leonard Fournette missing practice because of a strained right hamstring, Yeldon is getting the majority of practice repetitions and preparing to carry the load Sunday against the New England Patriots (1-0).“Whenever my number is called, I’ll always be ready to get into a rhythm and go,” Yeldon said. “I really don’t have a problem with that.”While many outsiders believe there’s a huge drop-off from Fournette to Yeldon, the Jaguars (1-0) insist there’s only a marginal difference between the two. It’s a big reason the old-school, run-first team kept only three running backs — Fournette, Yeldon and change-of-pace speedster Corey Grant — on the 53-man roster.Fournette tweaked his hamstring in the first half of Jacksonville’s season opener at the New York Giants . He sat out practice Wednesday, and coach Doug Marrone said the plan is for him to do the same Thursday.Marrone said Fournette will go through tests Friday to see whether he’s able to play in a rematch of the AFC championship game.Jacksonville is likely to be cautious with Fournette, the centerpiece of the team’s offense. The fourth overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft, Fournette ran for 1,040 yards and nine touchdowns last season. He also caught 36 passes for 302 yards and a score.Fournette ran nine times for 41 yards against the Giants. Yeldon had 51 yards on 14 carries and caught three passes for 18 yards, including a 4-yard touchdown late in the second quarter.Marrone praised Yeldon for the strides he’s made.“He has always been good,” Marrone said. “I think he is more explosive. He’s stronger. He’s elusive. I think he can carry a load of carries. I just think he has done a nice job. I really do.”Yeldon has reason to take advantage of his opportunities. A second-round pick from Alabama in 2015, Yeldon is in the final year of his $5.9 million rookie contract.Jacksonville is prepared to lose Yeldon in 2019 free agency, believing another team will be able to offer him a starting job or at least more carries.Yeldon said he’s “not too much worried about that Josh Allen Jacksonville Jaguars Jerseys ,” adding “it’ll play itself out.” But he’s clearly planning for the future. He dropped weight in the offseason, getting below 220 pounds for the first time since his college days, and hopes to show he’s a three-down back.“I feel better, lighter, quicker, faster, more explosive,” he said. “I feel like it makes a big difference. I can cut better. I’m doing a lot of things better. I feel more comfortable this way.”The Jaguars hope it shows on the field. With Fournette uncertain to play, Yeldon could end up in a featured role.It’s a spot he didn’t expect. It’s also a position coaches and teammates say he can handle and prove to doubters there’s not much of a dip from Fournette.“That’s their fault,” receiver Keelan Cole said. “That’s on them. If they want to think that, just tell them to tune into the game.” What do you do if Dwayne Haskins falls to No. 7 overall?"WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Jaguars Free Agency 2016Jaguars Film RoomNFL DraftJaguars Injury NewsLatest NewsIf the Giants pass on Haskins the Jaguars’ decision may not be easyNew,67commentsWhat do you do if Dwayne Haskins falls to the Jaguars?EDTShareTweetShareShareIf the Giants pass on Haskins the Jaguars’ decision may not be easyBrian Spurlock-USA TODAY SportsWhen the Dallas Cowboys beat the New York Giants on a last second touchdown back in January, the Giants ensured the No. 6 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. For the Jacksonville Jaguars this meant that they, another quarterback needy team, would not be the lead team in the Dwayne Haskins Sweepstakes come draft day. If Tom Coughlin saw Haskins as the team’s future, he might need to jump ahead of his old team Marcell Dareus Jerseys Stitched , who themselves are in the twilight of Eli Manning’s career.The Jaguars signing of Nick Foles, for all intents and purposes, meant their interest in a quarterback at number No. 7 overall no longer existed, with attention now focused on defensive tackle, offensive tackle, or tight end.Then a strange thing happened. A very strange thing.According to ESPN host and anchor Dianna Russini, the Giants are not interested in Dwayne Haskins. She spoke on ESPN’s Breaking Blue Podcast.While pre-Draft talk serves many purposes, from outright denial to blood thick smoke screens, if accurate this news creates a very interesting possibility for the Jaguars in the first round. What if Dwayne Haskins is there when the Jaguars are on the clock? Do they trade back, still go with their board, or pull the trigger on the quarterback who many qualify as the most NFL ready player at the position in this draft?Local Jacksonville radio picked up on scenario, with radio host Mike Dempsey and Jaguars beat writer John Oehser discussing the possibility, and positing what the Jaguars might do. Along with show producer Tony Smith, the three agreed that if Haskins in there you should take him. When asked what he thinks the Jaguars will if Haskins is not there, Oehser stated there is an 80% possibility the Jaguars go offensive tackle, in his opinion.To make the discussion even more interesting Youth Marcell Dareus Jerseys , Dempsey created a poll for his listening audience, asking who they would take if Haskins was available at No. 7 overall. The link is below, if you have not voted. As of this writing the results are:WR/TE at 29%Best OL at 23%Haskins at 24%Trade down at 24%The question the Jaguars need to answer is how close they think this team is to competing without upgrading the offensive line or receiving corps with their present draft slot. As Oehser further noted, if the Jaguars believe Foles is the answer then they should not expect to be sitting high in in the first round for a few years to come. Your opportunity to grab a premier quarterback may be a present truth.Oehser makes a compelling point, one that mirrors what the Green Bay Packers did years ago when you still had Brett Favre on the roster but Aaron Rodgers fell to them. If you believe Haskins has the head for the NFL, but needs some bench time to transition considering his limited playing time at Ohio State, sitting behind Foles seems like an optimal scenario for the Jaguars.Jacksonville, with its history of quarterback failures, might best be served to double down on the position. However, if 2018 was a season where the team was only a quarterback away from being back in the playoffs, then you solidify the pieces around Foles. Going offensive tackle or tight end was an interesting binary, but adding quarterback into the debate adds a deeper layer of complexity.Obviously all of this is speculation, and news of how the Giants feel about Haskins could also be a sign they are looking to trade out of their slot, or it may create more motivation for teams to trade ahead of them. At the very least it gives us all something to talk about. For those who love Haskins in teal, it adds a few more logs to your fire.
