Ivory falls into the category of needing to improve from the previous game. Only 20 rushing yards on six carries in the last game, Ivory will need to perform better against the Buccaneers. With the emergence of Corey Grant, Ivory could be in trouble of losing his roster spot for the season so Ivory will need step up his game if he wants to be apart of the Jaguars.
