T.J. Yeldon draws impressive reviews following his first NFL regular season game.

T.J. Yeldon and Rashad Greene among most productive rookies in Week 1 – ESPN

"Yeldon’s 12 carries and 15 total touches were second to Atlanta’s Tevin Coleman (20 touches) and tied San Diego’s Melvin Gordon (15 touches). His rushing-receiving total of 67 yards was tied with Gordon and more than every rookie running back except Coleman, Ameer Abdullah and Karlos Williams."

T.J. Yeldon could have a big day against the Miami Dolphins – Florida Times-Union

"The Dolphins’ vaunted defensive line, led by $110 Million Man Ndamukong Suh, was punched in the mouth by the Redskins’ offensive line Sunday. Alfred Morris gained 121 yards on 25 carries, and the Redskins had a whopping 15 carries of at least 5 yards.This comes after a year in which Miami allowed 165.3 yards rushing over its last six games of 2014 and responded by signing Suh. Before that woeful stretch, the Jaguars in Week 7 last year gained 176 yards on 30 carries in a loss to the Dolphins."

T.J. Yeldon to be more involved in offense moving forward – CBS Sports

Wednesday’s Takeaways: Can’t overlook the QB – Jacksonville Jaguars team site

"We begin Wednesday takeaways with the opponent, with the focus this week again on a mobile quarterback. Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill lacks the name recognition – and contract – of Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, but he can’t be overlooked when game-planning for Miami. His mobility can’t be overlooked, either. Tannehill likely won’t take over a game with read runs as Newton did Sunday, but while he ran three times for seven yards in a 17-10 victory over Washington in the opener, he will run effectively given the opportunity. “A lot of quarterbacks we play can run, but with him, he’s very smart when he chooses to run,” Jaguars cornerback Aaron Colvin said. “He knows he has a good arm and he knows how to keep a defense off balance also.”"
