Jaguars Considering Holding Out RB Leonard Fournette Until Week 10


Florida Football Insiders, citing a source with knowledge of the Jaguars thinking, reports that the Jaguars could elect to hold RB Leonard Fournette out through the end of October.

Fournette reinjured his hamstring and with the Jaguars traveling to London and then on bye, it could make sense for Jacksonville to be cautious and hold him out until Week 10.

Their source did say that this was definitive and the Jaguars will evaluate Fournette next week, but he’ll be inactive if he isn’t significantly better.

The Jaguars will move forward with T.J. Yeldon as their starter and Jamaal Charles as their backup for the time being.

Fournette, 23, is a former first-round pick of the Jaguars back in 2017. He’s currently in the second year of his four-year, $27.15 million contract that’s fully guaranteed and stands to make a base salary of $1.69 million for the 2018 season.

In 2018, Fournette has appeared in one game and rushed for 41 yards on 9 carries (4.6 YPC) to go along with three receptions for 14 yards receiving and no touchdowns.

We’ll have more regarding Fournette as the news is available.
