Jaguars rookie RB Leonard Fournette admitted that his ankle injury could very well impact him for the remainder of the season.
“The best way for me to get it healed is to rest and I don’t have that much time,” Fournette said, via the Florida Times-Union. “I just have to keep working on getting my ankle back — that’s all. I think [coach Doug Marrone] and running backs coach [Tyrone Wheatley] have a great plan throughout the week to keep me fresh. That’s about it.”
- Josina Anderson reported Sunday that Packers RB Ty Montgomery‘s re-aggravated ribs are little more painful than the original injury.
- According to Anderson, Montgomery will still see if he can give it a go this week and the hope is he’s able to practice earlier in the week.
- Ian Rapoport reports that Packers DT Kenny Clark suffered a high-ankle sprain during Sunday’s game and miss some time. Although, this is not considered a season-ending injury.
- Panthers TE Greg Olsen, who returned to practice on Monday, told reporters that the plan is still for him to play on Sunday. (Jourdan Rodrigue)
