Patriots undrafted RB Jonas Gray is opening the door for other unknown players
Jonas Gray came in the NFL from Notre Dame as an overlooked player. He was signed by the Miami Dolphins and then released after suffering a knee injury. He then landed on the Ravens practice squad before getting cut from there. Well he is now on his third team and boy is he making the most of it.
Gray authored the best performance by any running back this season, pounding out 199 yards and four touchdowns on a whopping 38 carries in Sunday’s win over the Indianapolis Colts breaking a franchise record. Gray also became the first NFL running back since 1921 to score 4 rushing touchdowns in a game after entering the game having zero career touchdowns
According to NFL Media’s research department, Gray currently stands as the first player since at least 1940 to rush for as many touchdowns as the rest of the NFL combined in a given week.
Jamaal Charles (2), Knile Davis and Eddie Lacy were the only other players to run for a score in Week 11.
It just goes to show you, that if you believe in your efforts, you too can succeed.
