JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette says his ankle feels good and he "most definitely" will be healthy enough to play Sunday at Indianapolis.
Fournette missed a second consecutive practice Thursday because of a sprained right ankle. The rookie expects to do "cutting and stuff" Friday before coach Doug Marrone decides his status against the Colts.
Fournette ranks second in the NFL with 596 yards. He also has seven touchdowns, which is tied for the league lead. He has 397 yards and three scores on the ground the last three weeks.
Receiver Marqise Lee (knee) and center Brandon Linder (illness) also missed practice Thursday.
