Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette questionable to return vs. Jets with hamstring tightness
Leonard Fournette has had a rough start this season for the Jacksonville Jaguars. As talented as he is, injury issues have been a major problem for the star running back this season. After missing some time due to a hamstring injury, Fournette was able to start the game today, but has already been sidelined due to hamstring tightness once again.
According to a report from Tad Dickman of the Jaguars’ PR team, Fournette is questionable to return to today’s game due to yet another hamstring issue.
INJURY UPDATE:@Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette has hamstring tightness and is QUESTIONABLE to return.

Jacksonville’s offense has been struggling a bit this season, but their defense is once again dominant. If Fournette is forced to miss more time, the Jaguars will have to figure out how to replace him.
T.J. Yeldon has been the guy who has taken the majority of the touches, but that does not give the Jaguars the kind of threat that they need to take pressure off of Blake Bortles.
Fournette had rushed for just 41 yards on nine carries coming into today’s game. Before going out with hamstring tightness, Fournette had carried the football 11 times for 30 yards.
Hopefully, Fournette will be able to return from this injury quickly. Whether he sits the rest of this game or is able to return, the Jaguars cannot afford to have their star running back continue to miss time.
Jacksonville is one of the only teams that can seriously contend to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl. If Fournette is out, however, that would be a major blow to those chances.
More news will become available in the near future about Fournette. Make sure to continue checking back for more information!
