The Jaguars expect RB Alfred Blue to miss the coming week of practice and Thursday's 3rd exhibition game against the Dolphins, according to Phillip Heilman of The Athletic. Blue sprained his left ankle in Thursday night's game agains the Eagles. His absence will leave Ryquell Armstead, Thomas Rawls, Elijah Hood and Devante Mays behind Leonard Fournette in the Jacksonville backfield. Armstead returned to practice Saturday, according to USA Today's James Johnson, after sustaining a concussion in the team's 1st preseason contest.

The Jaguars on Sunday placed RB Alfred Blue on IR. Waiting until Sunday indicates the Jags plan to bring him back mid-season. Had Jacksonville made the move Saturday, Blue would be done for the season. His deactivation leaves only Ryquell Armstead behind Leonard Fournette among RBs from the preseason. Jacksonville claimed RBs Tyler Ervin and Devine Ozigbo off waivers

RB Alfred Blue has reached a 1-year deal with the Jaguars. Turning 28 later this month, Blue proved capable of handling big workloads when called upon in Houston. But he's averaging 3.6 yards per carry for his career and doesn't offer much in the passing game. He'll back up Leonard Fournette in Jacksonville and be just a handcuff in fantasy football. It's worth noting, of course, that Fournette has missed 11 games over his first 2 NFL seasons.

Texans RB Alfred Blue (concussion) isn’t listed on the final injury report and will play against the Jaguars on Sunday. He’s not a fantasy option but figures to steal a handful of touches from RB Lamar Miller.

Texans RB Alfred Blue (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the 49ers. With only RB Andre Ellington behind him, RB Lamar Miller is a lock to dominate carries in the plus matchup.

Texans RB Alfred Blue suffered a concussion in Sunday's loss to the Titans. His last carry came about midway through the 3rd quarter. Missing further time would leave the Houston backfield to Lamar Miller and Andre Ellington, who logged 2 carries and 6 targets in his Houston debut. Ellington finished the game playing wideout after WR Braxton Miller and WR Bruce Ellington also left with injuries.
