The former Cougar was dubbed “the best running back in the league” by teammate Brandon Marshall just over three weeks ago. Since that time, Ivory has been held to under 50 yards for three consecutive weeks.
Ivory gained just 26 yards on 23 carries in the Jets’ 28-23 win against Jacksonville on Sunday. It wasn’t all bad, though: Two of those yards accounted for 2 touchdowns. He also caught three passes on 3 targets for 22 yards.
Here’s how the rest of the NFL Cougs performed in week nine.
Husain Abdullah, FS, Kansas City, 7th season: Did not play; bye week. Note: Husain and brother Hamza were in Pullman to see the Cougs defeat ASU on Saturday.
