Jaguars WR Lee carted off field, Fournette shut down

Jaguars WR Lee carted off field, Fournette shut down”

Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said he will likely hold out both injured wide receiver Marqise Lee and rookie running back Leonard Fournette from practicing the rest of this week and they will likely miss Thursday night's preseason home opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Jaguars drafted the former LSU star with the fourth overall pick.

Fournette ran nine times for 31 yards and a touchdown at New England on Thursday. He practiced Saturday after the team had Friday off.

Marrone told reporters Sunday the team was "being careful with him" after the running back's foot injury was confirmed.

Fournette sat out practice Sunday and is unlikely to work against Tampa Bay in joint practices Monday and Tuesday. "I think it's just one of those nagging things". Marrone sounded as if Fournette might be rested this week to help ensure he's ready when the Jaguars start the season at Houston on September 10. "I think, to me, it was really easy". "If it puts anything in jeopardy for a longer ordeal, because we'll get him back, then I would probably hold him".

Fournette was not present to watch the Jaguars' practice on Sunday. If Fournette struggles to stay healthy in his rookie year, the Jags will have to turn once again to Chris Ivory and T.J. Yeldon, a duo that combined for just 904 rushing yards and five total touchdowns last season.
