The Jaguars have had RB Leonard Fournette working mainly with the second-team offense in camp because coach Doug Marrone says he wants rookies to earn their way up the depth chart, but it’s easy to see that Fournette is the real deal.
He’s a powerful runner, yet he has been able to slip through creases at the line of scrimmage to gain positive yards when it appeared he would be tackled for a loss or no gain. Fournette has also proven throughout camp that he will be a good receiver out of the backfield.
Of course all is not good. There's a little bit of concern about a foot injury that the team is trying to manage, the story said. Fournette missed his first practice Monday, and the team is taking a cautious approach with him.
