Jacksonville Jaguars Daily: Teammates agree with Leonard Fournette that NFL isn’t so bad after SEC

Jacksonville Jaguars players agree with Leonard Fournette — NFL isn’t that bad after the SEC -
Rookie running back Leonard Fournette caused a stir last week when he said the transition from college to the NFL was "really easy" because he played in the Southeastern Conference. As outlandish as that sounds, several of his Jacksonville Jaguars teammates say he's right.

Doug Marrone changes his tune on the whole “Blake Bortles rest day” thing -
If you hadn’t heard, Blake Bortles threw two pick sixes in practice and would have had a third interception had defensive backs coach Perry Fewell not yelled to the defensive back to knock it down due to field position advantage. Shortly after, Bortles was pulled from practice and backup quarterback Chad Henne finished out his first team reps. This led to a lot of confusion wondering if Bortles was hurt or got benched, but after practice Marrone stated that it was a planned rest day and Bortles was on a “pitch count”.

Marqise Lee and Leonard Fournette have been ruled out vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers -
Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette and receiver Marqise Lee won’t play in Thursday’s preseason game against Tampa Bay. Coach Doug Marrone ruled out both players Monday, reiterating that the team is going to be cautious with them. Fournette has a “nagging” foot injury that Marrone said has “been kind of growing.” The fourth overall pick in the NFL draft attended practice Monday, but wasn’t wearing pads and didn’t do any work.
