The Jacksonville Jaguars have been without Leonard Fournette for the majority of this season. Since the team’s game against the New York Jets in Week 4, the former first-round pick has dealt with a major hamstring injury.
In his absence, T.J. Yeldon has taken on a larger role in the backfield. The front office also went out and acquired Carlos Hyde from the Cleveland Browns.
With the Jaguars currently on a four-game losing streak, coming out victorious on Sunday will be pivotal if they want to remain in the hunt for the division.
Although the likelihood of Blake Bortles matching Andrew Luck through the air is pretty low, Jacksonville can finally rely on its superstar running back.
Fournette will be active this weekend against the Indianapolis Colts, per reporter Daniel Popper.
