JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Being a rookie receiver in the NFL is tough enough, but Ace Sanders is trying to play different spots.
Because of Justin Blackmon's multiple suspensions and injuries to Mike Brown and Stephen Burton, Sanders has had to play in the slot and outside. He's done a solid job in the slot but hasn't been as good outside, writes the Florida Times-Union's Hays Carlyon.
"We all think Aces is really coming into his own," coach Gus Bradley said. "Mike Brown went down [against Arizona] and then what happened? Ace moved to a different position. He had to play a different position and there were some missed opportunities for us there. We had a route that wasn’t run properly and things like that. Ideally if we can keep him at that [slot] position you will see faster development.”
Sanders has caught 24 passes for 243 yards this season.
