Jaguars RB Corey Grant suffered a Lisfranc injury that will "likely" end his season, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Grant was playing a change-of-pace role behind T.J. Yeldon with Leonard Fournette sidelined with his hamstring injury. Fournette is expected to miss at least another game, leaving only Brandon Wilds behind Yeldon. Yeldon should see feature-back usage against the Cowboys in Week 6.
Jaguars RB Corey Grant injured his left leg in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game against the Chiefs. He put no pressure on the leg as he was helped off the field. We'll update Grant's status when we know more. His absence will mean more work for RB T.J. Yeldon.
UPDATE: Jacksonville announced Grant with a foot injury. He's officially questionable to return but was carted back to the locker room.
Jaguars HC Doug Marrone confirmed Wednesday that RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) won't play against the Chiefs this weekend. Fournette is likely looking at another multi-game absence after re-injuring his hamstring this past Sunday. T.J. Yeldon will operate as Jacksonville's lead back in a plus matchup in Kansas City, with Corey Grant as the change-of-pace.
ESPN's Adam Schefter tweeted that Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette will likely miss "at least" 2 games with his hamstring injury. It's unclear if Schefter was reporting or taking an educated guess. Fournette missed 2 games with the bum hammy the first time around, and aggravations tend to cost guys even longer. Jags HC Doug Marrone said Monday that he's not yet sure how long Fournette will be sidelined. We'll continue to monitor the situation, but fantasy owners obviously need to prepare to again be without their stud RB. T.J. Yeldon will serve as Jacksonville's lead back for however long Fournette is out, with Corey Grant in a change-of-pace role.
Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game against the Titans. That’ll again leave the backfield to T.J. Yeldon and Corey Grant. With Fournette out last week, Yeldon carried 10 times and caught 2 of 5 targets. Grant ran it 4 times and reeled in 6 of 7 targets.
Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) has an "uphill battle" to play against the Titans today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Fournette "will have to prove a lot pregame to get on the field," Rapoport adds. ESPN's Adam Schefter, meanwhile, reports that Fournette is "likely" to play. The conflicting reports mean Fournette is likely a game-time decision. We'll find out his official status by noon ET. If he's inactive, Jacksonville's backfield would again be down to T.J. Yeldon and Corey Grant.
Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) is officially inactive for today’s game against the Patriots. We’ll monitor his progress throughout next week as he aims to get back for Week 3. T.J. Yeldon will serve as Jacksonville’s lead back today and is a nice RB2 in fantasy lineups. Corey Grant figures to mix in for a handful of touches behind Yeldon.
The Jaguars are "not optimistic" about RB Leonard Fournette's (hamstring) availability for today's game against the Patriots, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Fournette is still listed as questionable and might be a game-time call. But the Jags promoted RB Brandon Wilds from the practice squad on Saturday, a sign they're not expecting to have Fournette. He should be on fantasy benches right now. T.J. Yeldon figures to serve as the lead back vs. New England, with Corey Grant mixing in behind him.
