Gus Bradley says Chris Ivory injury won't affect Jaguars running back rotation

"The arrow’s up on [Jared] Odrick and same thing with Ivory. They should be good."

The Jacksonville Jaguars will look to run the Green Bay Packers ragged on Sunday... literally. With Blake Bortles, Allen Robinson, and Allen Hurns poised to keep the Packers secondary on their toes with the threat of going deep in the passing game, the emergence of Chris Ivory and T.J. Yeldon as a formidable running duo could prove to be the difference-maker this weekend.

Unfortunately, Ivory has been dealing with an injury all week, but when asked specifically if Ivory's injury would affect how he was used in the rotation of running backs on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers, head coach Gus Bradley said simply, "I don't foresee it, no."

"The arrow’s up on [Jared] Odrick and same thing with Ivory. They should be good."

It's an important thing for Ivory to be in the game on Sunday. If he's in there alongside Yeldon, the Jaguars can keep Aaron Rodgers and the Packers vaunted passing offense off the field and wear down that opposing defensive line. If it's a quick-drive shootout-type of game, this could be a race the Jaguars won't be able to keep up in.
