Sargent rushed twice for five yards during Sunday's 37-7 win over Jacksonville. He only played two offensive snaps.
The 24-year-old running back spelled Sony Michel at the end of the game in garbage time for his two rushes, so he was hardly a factor in the game plan. Additionally, once Darrell Henderson (thigh) is healthy, Sargent will likely be entirely uninvolved in the offense.... See More ... See Less
