Life in the preseason is about to change dramatically for New York Jets veteran running back LaDainian Tomlinson.
After years of being dormant in August when he was with the San Diego Chargers, Tomlinson is going to have to put in a full workload with his new team.
“With change comes different expectations,” offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer told the New York Daily News. “LaDainian’s fighting for playing time. He’s got to earn the right. He wants to have the chance to start. So, he’s going to have to play… We can look forward to (him playing more in the preseason). Hopefully that will have something to do with him getting energized and getting off to a great start.”
It will be worth noting how Tomlinson makes it through the increased summer workload. Shonn Greene is still probably the guy to own at this point but we'll keep an eye on how the carries will be divided.
