“He has extraordinary burst as everybody can see. But he also is just a really all-around football player from his position,” Jones said Tuesday on 105.3 The Fan. “…He just can be a part of giving defenses fits, and you see it.”

“They’re two different type backs,” Jones said. “…Zeke is a tremendous weapon for football because physicalness does have an impact and does wear down and does win when it can be a part of not making as many mistakes as we’ve made a lot of times (on offense) when we’ve seen that earlier this year.
“We’ve always frankly known that with Pollard that we had an alternative there that was another way to do it, but a good way to do it. They make quite a tandem.”
