Running back Chris Ivory has missed the first two Jaguars games after taking an emergency trip to the hospital before the season opener, but he took a step back toward the lineup on Wednesday.
The Jaguars announced that Ivory has returned to practice as a limited participant for the first time since what’s been described as a “general medical issue” forced him to spend a couple of days under medical observation. Ivory returned to the team last Thursday and said in a statement that he looked forward to being back on the field soon.
The Jaguars likely feel the same way. They’ve managed 117 yards on the ground through the first two weeks of the season, which ranks them 30th among the league’s 32 teams.
T.J. Yeldon has been the lead back in the rushing attack with Ivory out of the picture and Ivory’s output in practice the next few days will likely determine how the workload gets divvied up when the Ravens visit this weekend.
