Leonard Fournette will reportedly be held out of the upcoming Jacksonville Jaguars game against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 6 as he continues to recover from his hamstring injury.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reported this news on Monday.
#Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette is, in fact, going to miss Sunday’s game against the #Cowboys with a hamstring injury, sources say. Not a surprise, it was headed that way. So he’s out two in a row after his setback.

When healthy, Fournette has been an effective runner for the Jaguars. Unfortunately, as we saw in his college career at LSU, staying on the field has been a problem early in his NFL career. This year alone, the second-year running back has played in just two games.
Fournette was out on Sunday when the Jaguars lost to the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium.
In his stead, T.J. Yeldon performed admirably, going for 53 yards on 10 carries and 69 yards with a touchdown on eight receptions.
Fantasy football owners should expect another heavy dose of Yeldon in Week 6, especially in light of Corey Grant being placed on injured reserve with a Lisfran injury.
