The Jacksonville Jaguars are exercising caution with running back Leonard Fournette.

Fournette has suffered a foot injury, and while it doesn’t sound major, the team’s head coach, Doug Marrone, admitted that they will be handling the situation with great care.

Fournette had recurring ankle problems in his final year of college in 2016, but this does not appear to be at all connected to that.
