Oakland Raiders RB Rashad Jennings received a one-year, $630,000 deal with a split salary.
Huddle Up: Jennings moves from backing up Maurice Jones-Drew to backing up Darren McFadden. Both situations provide opportunity; Jennings' recent performance suggest he's not especially capable of capitalizing.

Free-agent RB Rashad Jennings (Jaguars) posted on his official Twitter account that he is joining the Oakland Raiders. Terms of the deal were undisclosed.
Huddle Up: Jennings began the season as the Jags' starter but finished it on the bench due to concussion issues. As for the situation in Oakland, Mike Goodson is gone, but the Raiders' RB depth chart remains crowded with Jennings joining holdovers Marcel Reece, Taiwan Jones and Jeremy Stewart behind starter often-injured Darren McFadden.

Impending free-agent RB Rashad Jennings (Jaguars) has been plagued by injuries and was a disappointment when given a chance to start with RB Maurice Jones-Drew (foot) sidelined. The team might figure Jennings is no longer in their plans.
Huddle Up: Jennings impressed onlookers with his 459 yards and 4 TDs in 2010, but averaged only 2.8 yards per rush on 11 attempts in 2012 and was hampered by concussion issues.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Rashad Jennings (concussion) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 21, and has been ruled out for Week 16.
Huddle Up: With Jennings out for a third straight game and MJD still MIA, it's the Montell Owens Show once again for the Jags, who get an angry Patriots squad coming to town.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Rashad Jennings (concussion) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 20.
Huddle Up: Jennings failed his concussion test Wednesday, and for all intents and purposes, will miss a third straight game.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Rashad Jennings (concussion) was scheduled to take a concussion test Tuesday, Dec. 18, to determine if he can return. Results should be available Wednesday.
Huddle Up: Jennings was injured in Week 13, and in his stead, Montell Owens has had one good game (102 total yards, TD) and one poor one (53 yards, no scores). Of course, it's all going to hinge on the test results.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Rashad Jennings (concussion) will not practice Wednesday, Dec. 5, because he has not passed his concussion tests at this point.
Huddle Up: It sounds like Montell Owens is the next man up in that M.A.S.H. unit known as the Jacksonville backfield. Maurice Jones-Drew hopes to return soon, but Owens might get one or two weeks and there is little incentive to bring MJD back at this point. The question is whether you should really trust Owens in the playoffs; only start him if you are desperate at the position.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Rashad Jennings departred in the second quarter of Sunday's Week 13 game because of a concussion and will not return.
Huddle Up: For the second time in 3 weeks, Jennings left a game in the first half, this time finishing with 20 yards on 8 carries before being replaced by Montell Owens. With Week 12 starter Jalen Parmele suffering a season-ending injury a week ago, the Jags' RB situation has been nothing short of a fantasy mess with the injured Maurice Jones-Drew having missed 6 straight games.

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey said RB Rashad Jennings will start in Week 13, but the team will use a rotation at the running back position.
Huddle Up: Even lead backs rotate out from time to time, and the Jaguars do not exactly have quality depth at this point in time. Jennings should see the majority of the work barring injury this week, making him a solid flex play.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Rashad Jennings (knee) was listed as a full participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 26.
Huddle Up: Was it really only 3 weeks ago that Jennings opened the season as the Jags' starter? Jennings was hurt in that Week 1 game, and in the meantime, Maurice Jones-Drew confirmed that he's, well, Maurice Jones-Drew, preseason holdout or not. Jennings will be useful as a handcuff for MJD owners, but that's about it.

Updating a previous report, Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey said the MRI on RB Rashad Jennings' (knee) injured knee did not show any significant damage. Mularkey has not ruled out Jennings playing Week 2.
Huddle Up: Even if he can go, Maurice Jones-Drew has pretty much taken the starting gig back from Jennings. MJD rushed for 77 yards on 17 carries despite being promised a "limited workload." As predicted, Jennings has been relegated to a handcuff.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Rashad Jennings left in the second quarter of Week 1 after suffering a leg injury and did not return.
Huddle Up: Jennings' injury is believed to be to his knee, scuttling the Jags' plans to have Jennings serve as the main RB and the recently reported Maurice Jones-Drew primarily serve as the third-down back. Serious injury of not, expect Jennings to return a reserve role behind MJD going forward.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Rashad Jennings led the AFC with 209 rushing yards in the preseason. Jennings has been named the starting running back in Week 1.
Huddle Up: With no movement on the MJD contract front, Jennings is the man for now. How long that will last is anyone's guess at this point. But the takeaway from the pre-season is that Jennings was used just like MJD, with a heavy workload as the first-team offensive focal point.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Rashad Jennings rushed for 56 yards on 12 carries in the team's preseason game Friday, Aug. 10.
Huddle Up: With Maurice Jones-Drew following the path of Chris Johnson last year (except for the part at the end where he gets paid more), Jennings is a critical player to own for those with MJD on their roster and it is encouraging to see Jennings run well. As the holdout looms closer to the start of the season, the more Jennings becomes a worthy steal in the draft.
