Rob Kelley Will be Lead Back
In his press conference Monday Jay Gruden announced that Rob Kelley will be receiving the bulk of the carries, but said that Jones will get his workload as well. Gruden clearly saw enough in the Bengals game from Kelley give him the starting role.
There is the saying that you can’t lose your job because of injury, but Jones’ fumble issues are a different story. Jones has struggled in his career with holding onto the ball, and his fumbles already cost the Redskins a win in Detroit a few weeks ago.
If he can prove that he can hold onto the football he will get his carries, but until then he will get a lower workload.
