There were several times during Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns that Leonard Fournette said he felt throbbing pain in his right ankle.
Still, it didn’t stop him from rambling through the middle of the Browns’ defense, even though he came out the Jaguars’ 19-7 victory a few times because of his ankle.
After rushing for a season-low 33 yards last week against the Los Angeles Chargers, Fournette bounced back with a productive 111-yard performance on 28 carries in cold, rain and snowy conditions at FirstEnergy Stadium.
Fournette was listed as questionable to play. He tweaked his ankle last Sunday against the Chargers, was limited during practices on both Wednesday and Thursday, and then held out on Friday. Fournette was quoted as saying the best way for it to heal is to rest but he doesn't have the time for that. Fournette could miss some practices or be limited but it looks like he's going to try and play through the injury.
