Jaguars' Gus Bradley: Chris Ivory 'should' play Sunday

The Jacksonville Jaguars haven't been able to unleash Chris Ivory this season, but that could change in Week 3.

Coach Gus Bradley talked positively about the running back suiting up for Sunday's home game against the Ravens, despite Ivory being listed as questionable with the undisclosed illness that sent him to the hospital before the opener.

"He should (play), yeah," Bradley said Friday. "Again, I'll talk to him today, but I think he made another step today. Definitely arrow's up for him. Like I said before, the issue is more his conditioning and how he feels and what can we get from him. I know that's improving."

Ivory returned to practice on Wednesday after sitting out the past two weeks. He was upgraded to a "full" participant on Thursday and lines up as a solid bet to share carries alongside T.J. Yeldon.

Jacksonville's offense has missed Ivory on the ground, ranking 30th in the league with just 117 yards over two games. Yeldon and Ivory looked like a spicy combination in the preseason, though, giving the 0-2 Jaguars a reason for hope once both runners can rumble together.
