Jalen Ramsey of Jacksonville Jaguars questionable to face Dallas Cowboys

"I'm just trying to get in where I fit in, and I've just tried to make the most of every opportunity that I've had". At 3-2, the Jaguars have had a slightly better start to the season, although the Cowboys are a ideal 2-0 at home. Promoted from the practice squad on Tuesday, Grinnage is in line to make his National Football League debut against the Cowboys.

No doubt, it's an undermanned group and one that would benefit from including someone like Marcedes Lewis, who is now in Green Bay after the Jaguars released him in March following 12 seasons with the team. But at least for now, it's what the Jaguars have, and Paul is the most intriguing option.

If Dallas has any hope of winning this game they're going to need Blake Bortles to have another nightmare. "He's obviously a dude that can flat-out run".

"I'm ready to get the dust off these cleats", he said. "I think we've seen that throughout his career up to this point and I think that's something you have to continue to work with him on". These two teams have not faced each other since November of 2014 when the Cowboys won in Jacksonville, 31-17.

On his nine targets, Paul typically began each play either in the slot or as part of a trips package.

The Cowboys' ability to slow down the Jaguars' offense might hinge on the team's running back situation. It won't be enough to just try to screen the Jaguars to death, he has to be given a chance to make plays vertically as well. "Hopefully we can build on that from here".

The Jacksonville Jaguars (3-2) found out the hard way that quarterback Blake Bortles is not a volume passer.


The bright side for Dallas: another home game. Elliott rushed 20 times for 54 yards, the third-lowest rushing total of his career. "I just think overall I have to do a better job of managing that".

The Cowboys will lose if: They don't get an early lead.

Mickey Spagnola: You know, learned a while back from Norv Turner when he was the Cowboys' offensive coordinator that when you are facing a team like Jacksonville, one that everyone believes is superior to you, that there are ways to win games like this. Yeldon is expected to start against the Cowboys, with newcomers Jamaal Charles and Dave Williams also available. "I probably should have done a better job of that".

The Cowboys don't really have any receivers that would necessitate shadow coverage from Ramsey, as their pass-catching corps of Allen Hurns, Cole Beasley, Deonte Thompson, Michael Gallup, and Tavon Austin is arguably the worst in the NFL. That's usually not a good thing for running backs. "Doing certain things in the blocking game". However, Dallas is still extremely tough at home, and they do have better weapons in the contest.

Translation: It could be a work-in-progress for the Jaguars' offense.

Back in the preseason, the Jaguars were glad to have Paul as a special-teams contributor who provided depth on offense. This will allow them to run effectively and stay with the run longer. He would add a 21-yard touchdown run with a little under six minutes left in the game to complete the scoring.
