Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette has battled foot/ankle issues at various times this season, but a new injury has kept him out of practice both Wednesday and Thursday. It's a quad injury. It's possible the Jaguars could be limiting his practice reps to keep him fresh, but this Bears monitoring on Friday's injury report.
Fournette bounced back with a great week against Seattle after a couple of duds, and his matchup this week is juicy, as Fournette posted 120+ total yards and a touchdown in his NFL debut against the Texans. In the two games Fournette has missed this season, Chris Ivory received 17 and 23 touches; meanwhile, T.J. Yeldon saw 11 and 13 touches.
