T.J. Yeldon may have missed the last two preseason games, but he’s expected to be ready for Week 3.
"The Jaguars drafted Yeldon 36th overall after a three-year career at Alabama in which he rushed for 3,322 yards and 37 touchdowns. He was expected to become the starter but had been working mostly with the second- and third-team offense in OTAs and minicamp. He had gotten some first-team reps in training camp before getting injured."
"Bortles, who was 11 of 15 in a preseason opener, hit 8 of 16 passes for 98 yards. His chances for scoring touchdowns were hurt by poor offensive line play at times, a holding penalty in the red zone and a drop."
"Though the unit managed just three field goals on three possessions and quarterback Blake Bortles missed a potential touchdown pass, the offense has passed the eye test. Greg Olson’s system seems to be a much better fit for Bortles, and the run game has looked more than functional — which is something it really hasn’t been the past several seasons."
"While the Jacksonville Jaguars are expected to have running back T.J. Yeldon and defensive end Chris Clemons back for Friday’s game against the Detroit Lions, the team will likely be without seven other players who suffered injuries against the New York Giants:"
"Expectations are high for the second year receiver out of Penn State. The Jaguars were able to catch a glimpse of what Allen Robinson is capable of by taking a simple crossing route for 36 yards. Robinson would also have a catch for 20 and eight yards and finished his night with three catches for 64 yards, all in the first quarter. Robinson is clearly Bortles favorite target and could be the Jaguars first 1,000 yard receiver since Jimmy Smith in 2005."
