According to Florida Football Insiders, the Jaguars are considering the possibility of shutting down RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) until week 10. The report adds that he will be re-evaluated next week before any final decision.
Fournette originally suffered the hamstring injury in week one vs the Giants and re-aggravated it in week four vs the Jets. The Jaguars already ruled him out for this week’s game vs Dallas and with the team traveling to London in a few weeks and then on a bye, it could make sense for Jacksonville to be cautious and hold him out until Week 10.
T.J. Yeldon has done a fine job replacing him and the Jaguars signed veteran Jamaal Charles on Tuesday to be his backup.
Expect more regarding Fournette next week.
