With Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew continuing his hold out in search of a new contract, Rashad Jennings has asserted himself as a more than capable back up running back. The question that arose however was who would back up Jennings on the depth chart. Special teams ace Montell Owens has pushed himself to that position, listed as the No. 2 running back on the latest depth chart, capping off his preseason performance against the New York Giants that saw him truck over a safety for a touchdown.

"I'd say Montell is the backup right now,'' Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey told reporters after practice on Tuesday. "He's done a lot of good things. Third down, he's been very good. Every opportunity he's had to carry the ball, he's shown some good running skills.''

Owens has shown some ability in the past, despite playing fullback and special teams. Owens is a ProBowl special teams player, but seems to be showing he has the ability to make some plays on the football field.
