Jacksonville Jaguars running back Rashad Jennings left Sunday's game against the Vikings with a knee injury. We break down the fantasy implications.
Jacksonville Jaguars running back Rashad Jennings left Sunday's game against the Vikings with a knee injury. He did not come back out of the locker room after halftime. Jennings, who spent last season on injured reserve, had eight carries for 31 yards before exiting the game. He also caught one pass for nine yards. Maurice Jones-Drew has taken over in his absence.
Fantasy Impact: Rashad Jennings' average draft position took off as Maurice-Jones-Drew's holdout extended through the preseason. Jennings' injury could open the door for Jones-Drew to take back a featured role sooner than expected. Jones-Drew has 17 carries for 68 yards against a tough Minnesota run defense. He has added one catch for eight yards and done some punt returning as well.
