It’s possible that running back Jay Ajayi will see an uptick in snaps this weekend against the Dallas Cowboys.

After having just a few days to prepare for Denver, Ajayi turned in a remarkable debut leading the team with 77 rushing yards and earning his first touchdown of the season. With extra time over the bye week to delve further into the playbook, Ajayi could assume a larger role in the offense. He’s shown the coaching staff the ability to pick the offense up quicker than expected.

“I was impressed with Jay right off the bat in the first week how quickly he grasped (the playbook),” offensive coordinator Frank Reich stated Tuesday afternoon.
