Leonard Fournette out Sunday for Jaguars against Texans, Chris Ivory will start

Set to sit out Week 15 vs. Texans

Leonard Fournette injury update: Jaguars RB ruled out Sunday

Leonard Fournette, the Jaguars' rookie running back and their leading rusher this season, will miss the team's game Sunday against the Houston Texans at EverBank Field. Fortunately, it sounds like the star rookie will be back in action in Week 16.

Veteran Chris Ivory is expected to start in his place.

Yeldon had a significant role during that stretch as well, though, outgaining Ivory 163-117 on the ground.

Experts say the perpetrator could have also been a harbor seal, given that the two species are hard to tell apart in the water. He was pulled from the water by other swimmers who carried him to the street, where he was picked up by an ambulance.

The Jaguars will enter play on Sunday against the Texans with a record of 9-4 while now sitting in first place in the AFC South. Jacksonville will battle Houston at 1 p.m.

The matchup for Ivory isn't the best considering the Texans are ranked the third-best defense against running backs in fantasy football. Still, the former LSU superstar had been ruled as questionable on the final injury report issued on Friday, so hope remained for both his fantasy owners and Jacksonville fans alike. Still, Marqise Lee has been a reliable weapon with at least five catches in five of his last six games, and he's scored three touchdowns in that stretch.

With a possible uptick in looks near the red zone, the receiver could be a valuable fantasy starter for Week 15.
