        Whitt on Ja’Quinden Jackson moving to running back and if it’s permanent for the season:
        “Yes, he’s a natural, he did play running back in 8th, 9th and 10th grade full time. Maybe 10th grade is when he transitioned to quarterback, but he has the background and he’s explosive, a big back at 230 pounds. Just shy of that, he’s fast, got really good vision. He makes some runs in practice and cuts back which is really impressive. The rest of this season we expect he gives us another viable option at running back. When Chris went down, you’re a guy short, if anybody could fill the bill, it was him, and we decided to give him a shot. Credit to him, he embraced it and said ‘absolutely.’  With his mentality and his skillset, what you saw tonight was just a taste of what he could bring to the table. Until further notice he is a running back, but we’ll re-evaluate that at the end of the season.”

        Corollary, Nate Johnson is now QB3.
