I'm counting on Travis Henry or Alvin Pearman getting the touches.
What happened to Toefield?
Nothing. This is just a VHawk conjecture, based on Toefield's production in the past, and what the Jacksonville coaches have been saying about both back-ups.
Bart Hubbuch, of the Florida Times-Union, reports Jacksonville Jaguars rookie RB Alvin Pearman has been impressive during the team's weekend minicamp. He has made the most of his practice repetitions, drawing praise from the coaching staff for his speed and quick cuts. Pearman is getting his chance to play because starting RB Fred Taylor (knee) is sitting out the minicamp after undergoing knee surgery.
Vic Ketchman, of Jaguars.com, reports Jacksonville Jaguars rookie RB Alvin Pearman is making a strong bid to be the team's third-down back. Pearman has been showing off his pass-catching abilities at the team's passing camp practices this week. It's doubtful he can be the team's feature back, but the third-down role seems to be a perfect fit. "I have my sights set on being the best football player I can be," Pearman said following morning practice Wednesday, May 18. "I'm highly competitive and have a lot of heart. I'm the kind of player who does what it takes. That's how I describe my game."
To be making a strong bid for a 3rd down back role when Taylor and Toefield are both in front of you on the depth chart says something. This is exactly what was said about Domanick Davis in his rookie year.
