Update: Etienne was asked about the injury after the game and indicated he’d be ready for next week. The Jags pulled off a comeback win over the Ravens 28-27 on Sunday and face the Detroit Lions in Week 13. With Etienne injured most of Week 12, the Jaguars turned to JaMychal Hasty, who had 95 total yards with five catches and a TD. Hasty is worth considering if you have Etienne on your fantasy football roster.
Update: Etienne is back on the sidelines with the team and still has his pads on. He is reportedly cutting on the sideline and seems to be testing out his foot. The Jags are up 7-6 midway through the second quarter and could use a spark if Etienne is able to get back into the game.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are hosting the Baltimore Ravens in Week 12. The Jags have seemingly found their running back of the future in Travis Etienne. He has taken over the starting running back role and has been involved in both the running and receiving aspects of the game. Unfortunately, Etienne seems to have suffered a foot injury in the first quarter of Sunday’s game. He is questionable to return.

Prior to his injury, Etienne was having a down game. He only had two carries for three yards and wasn’t targeted in the passing game. While Etienne is sidelined, the likely beneficiary will be JaMycal Hasty, who should see an increased workload. Hasty hasn’t seen much work this season and only had 13 carries heading into this week. With that work, he had 92 yards and a touchdown. He has also brought in seven of his 10 targets for 23 yards, so could also see some screen passes come his way in passing situations.
