Jacksonville Jaguars running back Rashad Jennings got the start against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, but left the game in the first half with a knee injury that is not believed to be serious, according to Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey.

"Just a leg right now, I'm going to tell you that," Mularkey told reporters in his post-game press conference. "He tried to play through it, so we'll see where he is. But he tried to play through it, he went in there on the goal line play after he'd come out. I don't know how serious it is, but he did go in after a couple of snaps."

"I don't think serious," Mularkey said when asked if it was a worrisome injury.

Jennings ended the game with eight carries for 31 yards and looked like he was just about to get going before he left the game. If Jennings is back healthy for Week 2, the Jaguars have two "starting" caliber running backs they can play off one another against the Houston Texans.
