Expect the Jacksonville Jaguars to take it easy on Leonard Fournette -
Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette had his helmet in hand, cleats on his feet and was wearing his shell pads during the team's practice Tuesday, but he didn't do much.

That's probably going to be the standard procedure for the rookie for the rest of the season as the team deals with his chronic right ankle injury.

Yannick Ngakoue is the pass rusher the Jacksonville Jaguars have been looking for -
Most of the talk about the Jacksonville Jaguars defense rightfully centers on Defensive Player of the Year candidate Calais Campbell and cornerbacks A.J. Bouye or Jalen Ramsey, there is a defensive player who has somehow gone under the radar, as far as plaudits, and is just 2.5 sacks off Calais Campbell’s mark of 11.5 sacks. Former third round pick Yannick Ngakoue had another fantastic performance on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, and was a big factor in why the Jaguars won the game.

Ngakoue finished the day with two and a half sacks, including two forced fumbles. One of those strip sacks on rookie DeShone Kizer was the fumble that was recovered in the endzone and sealed the win for the Jaguars.

Calais Campbell wants a win — and Larry Fitzgerald’s jersey -
Calais Campbell has two things he wants to bring back from Arizona: An eighth victory and Larry Fitzgerald’s No. 11 jersey.

One is much more important to him than the other.

Campbell will return to the place where he spent the previous nine seasons when the Jacksonville Jaguars (7-3) play the Cardinals (4-6) on Sunday. While he’s looking forward to seeing close friends, former teammates and ex-coaches, the veteran defensive end hopes to make keep his homecoming as low-key — and successful — as possible.
