Leonard Fournette is questionable for this afternoon's game against the New England Patriots. Here is the latest on the status of the Jacksonville Jaguars' star running back as we approach kickoff.

Fournette is dealing with a hamstring injury he suffered in the Week 1 win over the New York Giants. He's been attempting to get ready to play for this afternoon's game, but it's unclear if he'll be able to.

ESPN's Michael DiRocco just reported that Fournette jogged out to the players' parking lot with no apparent wrap on his hamstring.

"Just saw Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette jog out to the players parking lot. No wrap on his injured right hamstring," he reports.

This could be good news, as Fournette was reportedly going to test out his hamstring at about noon E.T. to see if he was able to play. ESPN's NFL insider Jeff Darlington, though, thinks it's unlikely that it will happen. "I really believe Fournette was trending in right direction this week, but I don’t think the Jaguars will risk playing him if he’s not 100 percent during his pregame warmup. Too risky in Week 2. For fantasy purposes, no promises, but I would be very hesitant to assume he plays," he tweeted.

The Jaguars have reportedly been skeptical of Fournette's chances of playing this afternoon. They activated a running back from their practice squad on Saturday, which probably isn't a great sign for Fournette's playing status.

We likely won't get an official world on Fournette until closer to game time, though. The Jaguars and the Patriots are scheduled to kick off at 4:25 p.m. E.T.
