The Jacksonville Jaguars are facing the Tennessee Titans in Week 18. The Jaguars’ offense has struggled, and starting running back Travis Etienne Jr. has been on the sideline getting worked out by trainers. It remains to be reported what the injury is, but Jacksonville could use a spark on offense as they are down 28-13 in the third quarter.

Etienne Jr. has led the Jags’ backfield this season with 951 yards and 11 touchdowns on 251 carries. He helps to establish their offense and would be a big piece missing as the team tries to mount a late-game comeback against Tennessee in the final regular season game of the season. Rookie running back Tank Bigsby has been a good complement to Etienne, but would still be a downgrade from what we have seen recently.
