    vs. Minnesota - 69 yards
    vs. Indianapolis - 49 yards

    I think we'll miss the screen pass more than anything with the loss of PT.

    Bush looks primed to step up and fill the void at getting yards in between the tackles, as he looked outstanding vs Tampa in week 17.

    I don't know what Jones' value to this team in the playoffs will be. Not holding out much hope on that front. Wynn might be a better option than Jones.

    Jones breaks the occasional big run, but he's not consistent. You're right about the screen pass; PT has a great instinct for the play, and we've missed it all season without him.
