T.J. Yeldon was one of the last players to come to his locker after the Jaguars beat the Miami Dolphins 23-20 on Sunday.

The team’s second-round pick in 2013 downplays the injury, saying it’s nothing major, just a broken finger that is healing, and doesn’t expect it to hamper his tackling. “If I’m tackling the way I should be [wrapping up runners], I shouldn’t need my fingers,’’ he said. “If you’re using your fingers, you’re grabbing.’’ read more
