The backlash from Sunday’s brawl in Buffalo is that Leonard Fournette won’t be available for the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 13.

Fournette got into a fight with Shaq Lawson — leaving the bench to do it — as part of a larger scrum Sunday (watch here). Both players were ejected and had to be separated in the tunnel as they were escorted to their respective locker rooms.
This is just one more big blow in Jacksonville Monday. Blake Bortles was benched for Cody Kessler, and the team fired offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett as well, following its seventh loss in a row.
Losing Fournette will hurt. He’s been on a tear since returning to the lineup following his latest injury, racking up 190 yards and three touchdowns on the ground the past two games.
