After exiting the game with 5:18 remaining in the first half with a hamstring injury, it appears that Leonard Fournette will suit up for a Week 2 matchup with the New England Patriots.
The Jaguars were still able to get the win without Fournette, using TJ Yeldon as the lead back. Although it seems like Fournette may not be able to practice this week, coach Doug Marrone is still hopeful that Fournette will be able to give it a go in the AFC Championship rematch on Sunday.

This is obviously a huge relief for Jaguars fans, as they wouldn't want to be without their primary offensive weapon against the Pats.
Fournette had a huge rookie season and will look to build upon that against New England.

Me: 0 and 8 all time.
Gip: So 1 of 9.
The Jaguars think it's about time for the Patriots to take a seat and make way for a new AFC dynasty. With personalities like Jalen Ramsey and the grit and grind of Fournette, Jacksonville is not going to welcome in Tom Brady with open arms.
