JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jacksonville Jaguars coach Doug Marrone is optimistic running back Leonard Fournette will play against New England despite missing practice all week.

Marrone says Fournette’s recovery from a strained right hamstring has been “encouraging,” but the coach listed Fournette as questionable on the injury report Friday.

Marrone adds that Fournette has stayed involved in meetings and game-planning, so “he’ll be ready to go” if he’s cleared to play Sunday.

Fournette said Thursday his playing status would be a game-day decision.

Fournette ran nine times for 41 yards in the opener before feeling his hamstring pop after making a reception. If he doesn’t play, T.J. Yeldon and Corey Grant likely would split repetitions against the Patriots.
