Ronald Jones sat out last week's Tampa Bay game at Washington, much to the dismay of those who started him (he was held out after aggravating a quad injury in pregame warmups). Jones has now started off this week with a missed practice, so he's iffy for the game at New Orleans.   more »

Jaguars rookie RB Robinson close to breaking record

Jacksonville Jaguars undrafted rookie running back JAMES ROBINSON has 1,170 scrimmage yards through 11 games this season. Robinson is just 159 yards away from breaking Dominic Rhodes’ record (1,328 in 2001)More for most scrimmage yards by an undrafted rookie in the common draft era.
