Mike Thomas took over punt returning duties against the Baltimore Ravens and saw his time at receiver decrease.

It looked like it might have been a demotion. Not so, said Jaguars offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter.

"Mike is going to play both inside and outside," Koetter said. "We probably played Mike [Sims]-Walker more plays than we wanted to."

Koetter said Sims-Walker was the receiver on plays in which they had two backs, two tight ends and just one receiver. They didn't anticipate being able to run the ball out of that formation as well as it did. But when it started working, the Jaguars began using it more.

"Mike Walker happened to be the receiver in that group," Koetter said. "No, we have definitely not seen the last of Mike Thomas as an outside receiver."
