The Jacksonville Jaguars will be without their two best players on offense in practice on Wednesday as both offensive lineman Brandon Linder and running back Leonard Fournette were held out.
The following #Jaguars players are expected be on the Week 2 injury report:— Mike Kaye (@mike_e_kaye) September 12, 2018
- RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring, no practice)
- LB Leon Jacobs (ankle)
- C Brandon Linder (knee, no practice)
- RT Jermey Parnell (knee)
- Jaydon Mickens (knee)
- Austin Seferian-Jenkins (core muscle)
According to Phillip Heilman of the Florida Times-Union, the plan is to sit Linder out of practice every Wednesday this season. But Fournette’s absence was not planned.
I wouldn’t worry too much about either Linder or Fournette. The team said on Monday they were “optimistic” about Fournette playing on Sunday against the New England Patriots and if/when Linder is back tomorrow it will all be forgotten.
Additional injured (but practicing) players include rookie linebacker Leon Jacobs, right tackle Jermey Parnell, wide receiver Jaydon Mickens, and tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins.
