Fournette dealt with an ankle injury throughout his final season at LSU, aggravating it 3 separate times and missing 6 games. He revealed after the year that it was a high-ankle sprain and a bone bruise. As a 2017 NFL rookie, he lost games to a right ankle sprain and a quad bruise (plus 1 for a team-imposed suspension). Fournette also sat out the final 3 preseason games after getting his left foot stepped on. He has reportedly shed weight in preparation for his 2nd NFL season and reprises his role as Jacksonville workhorse.
