T.J. Yeldon Injury Updates

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette sat out Thursday's practice with foot and ankle issues after putting in a limited workout Wednesday. He put in full workouts all last week while being listed with the foot and hadn't appeared on the injury report at all since Week 10 before that. Fournette's looking iffy for Sunday's game at Houston -- and at the very least will be a high-risk fantasy option, especially against 1 of the league's toughest run defenses. We'll see about his status after Friday's practice.

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) won't play against the Cowboys this weekend, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. This is more confirmation than new information. Fournette missed 2 games with the hammy injury the first time around and could be sidelined longer this time. It's possible the Jags hold him out through the Week 9 bye. With RB Corey Grant (Lisfranc) on IR, T.J. Yeldon will see feature-back usage in Week 6.

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.

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) won't practice on Wednesday. It's not a good start to his week -- although not entirely surprising, either. We'll see if Fournette gets back on the field Thursday. His hamstring injury is reportedly minor, but consider him 50/50 for this weekend's game against the Patriots. T.J. Yeldon will serve as Jacksonville's lead back if Fournette can't play.

"It sounds like" Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) will be ready for Week 2 against the Patriots, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The Jags reportedly considered putting Fournette back into yesterday's game against the Giants before opting to hold him out. So this sounds like a minor injury, although hamstrings are always tricky. We'll watch his practice participation all week. T.J. Yeldon would serve as Jacksonville's lead back if Fournette can't play Sunday.

Jaguars HC Doug Marrone said after Sunday's win that he's "pretty optimistic" about RB Leonard Fournette's hamstring injury. The training staff told him that the strain is in a “good part” of Fournette's right leg. We'll keep an eye on his status this coming week, but hammies tend to be tricky to return from. RB T.J. Yeldon obviously needs to be added in all leagues. He operated as Jacksonville's feature back after Fournette's injury, tallying 69 total yards and a score.

Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon (hamstring) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll make his 2017 debut against the Titans on Sunday. Yeldon isn’t a fantasy option, but we’re curious to see how much pass-catching work he steals from RB Leonard Fournette.

The Jaguars nabbed LSU RB Leonard Fournette with the 4th overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft. Only 3 RBs have ever been selected higher. Fournette was a man amongst boys, even in the SEC. He racked up 3,830 rushing yards with 40 TDs over the past 3 seasons. And that was despite fighting through an ankle injury most of last year. He was at his best in 2015, when he ripped off 1,953 yards and 22 TDs on 300 totes. Fournette boasts a generational combination of size and speed, even drawing a Bo Jackson comp from 1 scout. He checked into the Combine at 6’0, 240 pounds and clocked a 4.51-second 40 time. It earned him the top Speed Score in this year’s RB class. The concerns? Fournette sometimes struggles with lateral movement on tape, registered a poor 28.5-inch vertical at the Combine and didn’t complete any of the agility drills in the pre-draft process. He also totaled just 41 catches across his 3 college seasons — and dropped 8 balls, according to Pro Football Focus. Fournette joins a crowded backfield in Jacksonville that also includes Chris Ivory and T.J. Yeldon, but consider Fournette the heavy favorite to lead the way in touches this season.

The Jaguars have placed RB T.J. Yeldon on IR because of the ankle injury that knocked him out of Sunday's game against the Titans. That should help RB Chris Ivory's touch count for the season finale against the Colts. Ivory posted a 14-45-1 rushing line against Tennessee, adding 4-69 receiving on 6 targets. He'll hit Week 17 as a decent fantasy RB2.

Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon is done for the day with an ankle injury. He carried just twice for 5 yards before exiting. Chris Ivory will operate as the lead back the rest of the afternoon.

Jaguars RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) put in a full practice on Friday and isn’t listed on the final injury report. We’re still betting on T.J. Yeldon leading the backfield in touches against the Texans this weekend, but Ivory’s return puts a significant dent in Yeldon’s floor and ceiling.

Jaguars RB Denard Robinson has been diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain, HC Gus Bradley said Monday. That figures to cost Robinson multiple weeks, and possibly the rest of the season. RB Chris Ivory's status remains unclear with his hamstring injury. His absence would leave the backfield to T.J. Yeldon. He's been dealing with an ankle injury but racked up 17 touches in Sunday's loss to the Broncos.

Jaguars RB Denard Robinson injured his ankle in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's loss to the Broncos and did not return. He was operating as the lead back before going down, turning 18 touches into 64 yards. RB T.J. Yeldon took over the rest of the way, finishing with 82 yards on 17 touches. RB Chris Ivory missed the game with a hamstring injury.

Jaguars RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) is out for this weekend’s game against the Broncos. RB T.J. Yeldon, meanwhile, will play through his ankle injury. But just how much work he’s able to handle will be a game-time decision, HC Gus Bradley said Friday. RB Denard Robinson might be the best bet for touches in Jacksonville’s backfield this week, but it’s a situation to avoid in fantasy lineups.

Jaguars RB Chris Ivory injured his hamstring in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Bills. He's officially questionable to return. RB T.J. Yeldon, a surprise active today with an ankle injury, is now Jacksonville's lead back.

Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. We still don't have any details on his injury, but he's not looking particularly likely to play vs. the Bills this weekend. That'd put Chris Ivory in a feature-back role.

Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon suffered an ankle injury in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game against the Lions. He's officially questionable to return. We'll pass along an update when we get one.

The Jaguars listed RB Chris Ivory (calf) as questionable for Sunday's opener against the Packers. He was limited in practice this week, but we've heard nothing to suggest he's in danger of missing the game. ESPN's Michael DiRocco confirms that "it looks like he will play," and HC Gus Bradley said the injury won't impact the team's RB rotation. Ivory is expected to split backfield work with T.J. Yeldon. The Jags are 5.5-point underdogs to the Packers, setting this up as more of a Yeldon game.
