Jaguars optimistic RB Fournette will play
September 14, 2018
By The Associated Press
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) Jacksonville Jaguars coach Doug Marrone is optimistic running back Leonard Fournette will play against New England despite missing practice all week.
Marrone says Fournette's recovery from a strained right hamstring has been ''encouraging,'' but the coach listed Fournette as questionable on the injury report Friday.
Marrone adds that Fournette has stayed involved in meetings and game-planning, so ''he'll be ready to go'' if he's cleared to play Sunday.
Fournette said Thursday his playing status would be a game-day decision.
Fournette ran nine times for 41 yards in the opener before feeling his hamstring pop after making a reception. If he doesn't play, T.J. Yeldon and Corey Grant likely would split repetitions against the Patriots.
