Jacksonville Jaguars Daily: T.J. Yeldon looking to build off success of Colts game

NFL: Jacksonville Jaguars at Indianapolis Colts Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

T.J. Yeldon is looking to build off the success he had in the game against the Indianapolis Colts -
Before practice Wednesday, Jaguars coach Doug Marrone gave a strong indication that tailback T.J. Yeldon will be active Sunday against Cincinnati even if Leonard Fournette returns from his right ankle injury.

Yeldon rushed for a career-high 122 yards in the Oct. 22 win at Indianapolis. He played 23 snaps and had eight carries and two catches.

Marrone agreed that Yeldon’s production can be considered a signal to be involved moving forward.

Not only did the Jacksonville Jaguars lock up Telvin Smith to a long-term contract during the bye week, but they also made a blockbuster trade, adding former Buffalo Bills All Pro defensive tackle Marcell Dareus to their defensive line.

The move was a bit of a surprise, as most thought if the Jaguars were going to make a move prior to the end of the NFL Trade Deadline that it would be for an offensive player. Instead, the Jaguars decided to go all in on their defense, trying to shore up the one weakness and improving the run defense.
