It would be a massive understatement to say that the Jacksonville Jaguars
Jamaal Charles will be working out with the Jags on Tuesday, according to reports. The former Chief and Bronco last played in a backup role for Denver in 2017 and played decently. On 4.3 yards per carry, Charles piled up 296 yards and a score. His last season as a starter was back in 2014 when he recorded over 1,000 yards and nine TDs.
Charles is a four-time Pro Bowler who was one of the most electrifying backs in the NFL during his prime. While the 31-year old is a good few years removed from feature back status, his presence as a backup could surely be useful to a team dying for warm bodies to round out the ranks.
#Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette is, in fact, going to miss Sunday’s game against the #Cowboys with a hamstring injury, sources say. Not a surprise, it was headed that way. So he’s out two in a row after his setback.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 8, 2018
No matter the signing, Yeldon will likely retain his role as the interim starter while Fournette is out. Jacksonville fell to 3-2 this Sunday after falling to the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs, and while it's not quite yet panic time for the team, some reinforcements are certainly needed with arguably their best offensive player out.
