Reports: Jags RB Travis Etienne (foot) could miss season
Jacksonville Jaguars running back Travis Etienne’s rookie season is in jeopardy after tests confirmed a Lisfranc injury to his left foot, multiple outlets reported Tuesday.
The first-round draft pick from Clemson suffered the injury during the second quarter of Monday night’s 23-21 preseason loss at New Orleans.
NFL Network said tests revealed “a significant tear” that will sideline him for several months. ESPN said Etienne will have surgery to repair the damage and is likely out for the season.
Etienne, 22, was selected by the Jaguars with the 25th overall pick after they took his college teammate, quarterback Travis Lawrence, with the No. 1 pick.
Etienne is the all-time-leading rusher in Atlantic Coast Conference history after running for 4,952 yards in four seasons (55 games) at Clemson.
