Fournette has missed the past four games with a hamstring injury. However, reports have said for a few weeks now that Week 10 was likely to be his return date.
Jacksonville is looking to reestablish their power running game in the hope of opening things up for their passing attack and getting Fournette back should help.
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.
