The Kansas City Chiefs will be tasked with slowing down Lamar Jackson on Monday night and they are pulling out all stops to make sure their defense is prepared. With Jackson causing headaches for opposing defensive coordinators, the Chiefs had Jordan Ta’amu play Jackson’s role in practice, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Ta’amu, who signed with the Chiefs this offseason after a stint in the XFL, is listed at 6-foot-3 and 221 pounds. On the other hand, Jackson is listed at 6-foot-2, nearly 215 pounds for the Ravens.
Of course, it is nearly impossible to emulate what Jackson is capable of doing with his legs and his arm. However, Ta’amu did have some rushing success during his collegiate career at Ole Miss. In his two seasons at Ole Miss, Ta’amu combined for 507 yards and 10 touchdowns on the ground.
