New, comments

The Jaguars have released a depth chart before their regular season game on Sunday against the Panthers, and T.J. Yeldon is the starting running back.

The Jaguars have released their first official depth chart of the season leading up to their regular season opener against the Carolina Panthers.

The biggest things that stand out are T.J. Yeldon taking the top running back spot away from Denard Robinson. The coaching staff wanted Yeldon to be the starter all along and although Denard had far more reps in the preseason, they're giving it to Yeldon.

Also, Aaron Colvin is the starting cornerback opposite Davon House, with Demetrius McCray at No. 3. Thurston Armbrister is also the backup utility linebacker at middle and OTTO.
