The Jacksonville Jaguars have officially named running back Rashad Jennings as their starter for the season opener, according to the Florida Times-Union.
“Again, Rashad Jennings is going in as the starter. I don’t know how that came out being any different,” Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey said of who will start Sept. 9 against Minnesota.
In all honesty, though, what choice did the Jaguars have? Maurice Jones-Drew is still holding out and is nowhere to be found with the season opener rapidly approaching.
Even if Jones-Drew showed up today, it is questionable how much of the system from a new coaching staff with the opener less than two weeks away.
