Jaguars Beat: Expect to see more of RB Corey Grant

Grant’s speed has wowed observers since he arrived as an undrafted rookie in 2015 and he steadily has grown into a role. His 122-yard performance as the feature back in the 2016 regular-season finale in Indianapolis gave us a glimpse of what he could do with the ball on the ground, and the role expanded.
