There were several times during Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns that Leonard Fournette said he felt throbbing pain in his right ankle. Still, it didn’t stop him from rambling through the middle of the Browns’ defense, even though he came out the Jaguars’ 19-7 victory a few times because of his ankle. After rushing for a season-low 33 yards last week against the Los Angeles Chargers, Fournette bounced back with a productive 111-yard performance on 28 carries in cold, rain and snowy conditions at FirstEnergy Stadium. Fournette was listed as questionable to play. He tweaked his ankle last Sunday against the Chargers, was limited during practices on both Wednesday and Thursday, and then held out on Friday. After the game, Fournette acknowledged for the first time that he’s probably going to have to play through his nagging ankle injury for the remainder of the season and his workload will likely continue to be limited during the week before game days. Fournette initially sprained his right ankle during a Week 6 loss to the Los Angeles Rams at EverBank Field and it forced him to miss the following week’s game at Indianapolis.
