Jacksonville Jaguars running back Malcolm Thomas had his toughest game of the NFL Europe League season last weekend, but he still leads the league in rushing.
Thomas, a graduate of Jacksonville's Paxon High School, started and rushed for nine yards on seven carries in the Amsterdam Admirals' 25-7 loss to the Frankfurt Galaxy.
Thomas, who spent the 1997 NFL season on the Jaguars' practice squad, has 567 rushing yards and three touchdowns on 121 carries (4.7-yard average). He also has 14 receptions for 124 yards and one receiving TD in six games, and he is third in the league with 24 points.
Safety Ricky Parker - the other of two Jaguars players allocated by the team to the NFL Europe League - ranks second on the Admirals with 32 tackles and is credited with three passes defensed. He had a team-high six tackles in the game against Frankfurt.
The action occurred in the seventh week of NFL Europe play. The Admirals have a 4-3 record and lead the league in both total offense and total defense.
Four of the nine draft choices who agreed to terms with the Jaguars last week have already signed contracts with the team. The players are: quarterback Jonathan Quinn (third round), defensive end Lamanzer Williams (sixth round), fullback Kevin McLeod (sixth round) and wide receiver Alvis Whitted (seventh round). The remaining five players are expected to sign their contracts shortly.
