The Jaguars got some good news today with the return of two heavily relied upon starters on the offensive side of the ball.
Leonard Fournette, who injured his quad in the second half of the Jaguars week 14 win over the Seahawks (he never left the game), was unable to practice in week 15 and did not play against the Texans. He's been one of the most productive backs in football this season, despite dealing with nagging injuries. Fournette has been selected as a Pro Bowl alternate as a rookie, an impressive feat.
Allen Hurns, the Jaguars sturdy wide receiver, hasn't practiced since week 10. Dealing with an ankle sprain, Hurns has missed the Jaguars last four games. He'll be a welcome addition to a wide receiver group that has become increasingly consistent and explosive over the last three weeks.
The Jaguars were without Marqise Lee on Wednesday. He suffered an ankle sprain against the Texans. Head Coach Doug Marrone said he is hopeful that Lee can play against the 49ers. Marcedes Lewis suffered a shoulder injury and also missed practice.
The Jaguars offense should be close to full strength against the 49ers, and they might need to be - the 49ers have won three straight ball games and Jimmy Garoppolo may the only QB in NFL playing as well as Blake Bortles is right now.
