According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, Rashad Jennings will get the start at running back for the Jaguars’ week one match up against the Vikings, even though Maurice Jones-Drew has finally ended his hold out.

“Despite Maurice Jones-Drew reporting to the Jacksonville Jaguars, the plan is for the team to start running back Rashad Jennings in Week 1 against the Minnesota Vikings, a team source said Sunday.

“The decision to start Jennings is based on his preseason play and the fact that he has been at training camp, the source said,” wrote Rapoport.
