Jaguars planning to play without Leonard Fournette again
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars are preparing to play without running back Leonard Fournette again, maybe even for a longer stretch than before.
Fournette re-injured his right hamstring in a 31-12 victory against the New York Jets on Sunday, and coach Doug Marrone has no timetable for his return.
The second-year pro had tests following the game, and Marrone says results show the injury is no worse than before. Considering Fournette missed two and a half games after initially tweaking it and clearly returned too soon, it makes sense that the Jaguars (3-1) would be even more cautious this time around.
Jacksonville plays at Kansas City on Sunday.
Marrone says "if I knew exactly what the deal was and I could tell you, three, six, 10, IR, whatever, I would. I just don't know."
