Leonard Fournette injury update: Jaguars RB expected to return against Colts

Leonard Fournette injury update: Jaguars 'hopeful' RB can make return against Texans

Leonard Fournette is expected to return Sunday.

The 23-year-old Jaguars running back has been limited to just two games this season because of a hamstring injury and last played Sept. 30. Fournette, however, is healthy and should be on the field in Jacksonville’s Week 10 matchup with the Colts, coach Doug Marrone told reporters Friday.

“So far, no issues,” Marrone said (via ESPN). “He’s done everything we’ve asked him to do. So, no setbacks.”

Fournette originally hurt his hamstring in Jacksonville’s season-opening win against the Giants. He missed the team’s next two games with the injury before he returned against the Jets in late September.

Fournette, however, recorded 30 rushing yards on 11 carries and caught one pass before he exited that game in the first half.

The former LSU star was selected by the Jaguars with the fourth pick in the 2017 draft. He registered 1,040 rushing yards and nine touchdowns in 13 games as a rookie.

The Jaguars enter the matchup with the Colts on a four-game losing streak.
