Urbik’s solid play keeps ‘Unga on bench

The plan all along was to get rookie G J.J. ‘Unga more snaps in Sunday’s game against Jacksonville. With Kraig Urbik a game time decision with a foot injury it even raised the possibility that ‘Unga would make his first NFL start. Neither of those scenarios developed as Urbik turned in one of his better performances and went wire to wire in the win over the Jaguars.

“I think because we made the decision that Urbik went in there and started playing well and he was playing at a higher level than he had played before,” said head coach Doug Marrone in explaining why ‘Unga did not see any playing time on offense. “(Urbik) did some good things so Pat (Morris) came to me and asked, ‘What do you think?’ I said, ‘The way Kraig is playing right now and as healthy as he is we’re sticking with him because we’re trying to win a game.’”
