Things never stop in the NFL. You don’t have time to celebrate or mourn as another week means another opponent. The Dallas Cowboys host the Jacksonville Jaguars and their awesome defense this Sunday, and that’s going to be a tough day’s work.
While Jacksonville does have one of the best defenses in the league they also have one of the top running backs as well in Leonard Fournette. Well, they sort of do.
Fournette has been hurt for a majority of his second season which is not ideal if you’re a Jaguars fan, but ironically Jacksonville has experienced offensive success in games that he’s missed. Reports are that he’ll miss this Sunday in Dallas.
#Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette is, in fact, going to miss Sunday’s game against the #Cowboys with a hamstring injury, sources say. Not a surprise, it was headed that way. So he’s out two in a row after his setback.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 8, 2018
Fournette’s backup is T.J. Yeldon who has performed admirably when he’s had to fill in so it’s not like the Jaguars don’t have an ability to move on the ground. Still though, it’s notable that we know on Monday that Fournette will in fact miss the game.
