Fournette to play vs. 49ers

The Jacksonville Jaguars are so much better this season than they have been at any point probably since David Garrard was the quarterback. And while Blake Bortles has certainly been much improved, they’ve been winning games with that nasty defense and the running of rookie running back Leonard Fournette.

So, it’s a problem that he gets nicked up and has to miss time here and there. But, there is good news…at least for this week until he gets hurt again.

According to Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle, Fournette is going to suit up this weekend.

“Doug Marrone on conference call: #Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (quad) will play Sunday vs. #49ers,” Branch tweets.

It will be interesting to see Jimmy Garoppolo against this Jaguars defense. Granted, he’s got very limited weapons, but it will be a huge test for the 49ers. Especially if they get limited opportunities with Fournette helping control time of possession.
