A star NFL running back won't be on the field this weekend after he received one-game suspension for fighting. Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette lost his appeal this week and won't be able to play in the team's game against the Colts.
Fournette came off the bench and threw punches with Buffalo Bills linebacker Shaq Lawson, which resulted in his ejection and subsequent suspension.
ESPN insider Adam Schefter first reported the news.
It's a tough blow for the Jaguars who face the red-hot Indianapolis Colts. Andrew Luck is the primary candidate for Comeback Player of the Year after throwing for at least three touchdowns in eight-straight games.
T.J. Yeldon and Carlos Hyde will carry the load while Fournette is out. The star running back missed a significant portion of the season with a hamstring injury. Now he'll be forced to sit out yet again for his questionable decision during last weekend's game.
