Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette left the game in the first half against the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium. Fournette left with a hamstring injury.

He is questionable to return. He was holding his hamstring, as he was walking off the field following a play.

Fournette immediately went into the injury tent on the sidelines after leaving the field. After being in the injury tent, he moved to the locker room to get looked at further.

T.J. Yeldon and Corey Grant will split snaps for the rest of the game if Fournette cannot return. He had nine carries for 41 games at the time of his injury.

He also had three receptions for 14 yards.

This is a major loss for the Jaguars offense. The second-year back is very talented and has high expectations for this season following his rookie season, where he was one of the best running backs in the league.

In 2017, he had 268 carries for 1,040 yards in 13 games. He also had five games, where he rushed for more than 100-yards and nine touchdowns.

Fournette also had 36 receptions for 302 yards and an additional touchdown.

Without Fournette, the Giants can put an extra defender in the box, as Yeldon does not have the same talent as Fournette. The Jaguars, who are leading the game at halftime, may look to pass the ball around more in the second half.
