Rashad Jennings Injury: Jaguars RB Should Be Fine

Rashad Jennings suffered a knee injury in Jacksonville's Week 1 loss to the Minnesota Vikings, but luckily for both Jennings and the Jags, Jennings's injury doesn't appear to be serious.

Jennings, who replaced Maurice Jones-Drew as the starter on Sunday against Minnesota following MJD's lengthy offseason holdout, missed the entire second half with a left knee injury. Jones-Drew, who was likely to regain his starting job as soon as next week against Houston anyway, ended up taking the bulk of the Jaguars' carries following the injury and ended up with 77 yards on the ground. It doesn't appear Jennings' injury is serious, but his workload is likely to take a dip in coming weeks, either way.

Jennings missed the entire 2011 season because of a knee injury he suffered in the preseason. This injury is not nearly as serious, but it's still nevertheless concerning to see Jennings suffer another knee injury.

We'll see how much, if any, Jennings practices this week, as the Jaguars get ready to take on the Houston Texans in an AFC South Week 2 showdown.
