Jalen Parmele injury: Jaguars running back hurts leg, questionable to return

The loss of Parmele further diminishes an already struggling running game for the Jaguars.

Troy Taormina-US PRESSWIRE

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Jalen Parmele has a leg injury and his return is questionable, according to a tweet from the Associated Press' Mark Long

The Jaguars are late in the first quarter of their home game against the Tennessee Titans, where they are leading, 7-3. Parmele was only able to carry the ball one time for 13 yards before getting hurt.

The Jaguars are already without running back Maurice Jones-Drew and are now down to only two running backs on the roster in Rashad Jennings and Montell Owens. Jennings has 77 rushes for 220 yards and a touchdown coming into the game and Owens does not have any attempts this season.

The Jaguars are second-to-last in the league in rushing at 79.5 yards per game and the injury to Parmele doesn't help matters much. The Jaguars will have to rely on the passing game and hope that Chad Henne can continue his strong play from last week.
