Friday PM Update: Etienne is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game. He was limited in practice yet again on Friday. Despite this, head coach Pederson still says that Etienne is good to go on Sunday.

Friday update: Jaguars head coach Doug Pederson told reporters on Friday that RB Travis Etienne is “good to go” for this week, per Demetrius Harvey. He is a must start in all fantasy leagues.

Thursday update: Etienne got in another limited practice on Thursday. He appears on track to play this week, but it would be nice for his fantasy backers to see him get a full practice in on Friday.

Wednesday update: Head coach Doug Pederson “feels good,” about Etienne’s chance to play on Sunday. He will get in some practice today, but with just a walkthrough, practice reports won’t likely be all that useful until Thursday.

The Jacksonville Jaguars upset the Baltimore Ravens 28-27 on Sunday, but they did it mostly without Travis Etienne, who injured his foot and was removed from the game. The good news is that head coach Doug Pederson told reporters that Etienne was cleared to return to the game and should be fine moving forward, per Cameron Wolfe.

Fantasy football implications for Week 13

Etienne has played well as the starting running back in Jacksonville, as he’s rushed 133 times for 728 yards and four touchdowns. That’s a great 5.5 yards per carry. He’s also caught 22 passes for another 202 yards. He’s a must start when healthy.

If Etienne were to miss, there’s a reasonable chance that newly acquired Darrell Henderson could get a shot. He was inactive last week due to his newness with the team and playbook. JaMycal Hasty and Snoop Conner took over behind Etienne against the Ravens, but neither had much luck on the ground. But, Hasty did have a strong receiving game, which included a touchdown. He would likely continue to see receiving work if Etienne were to miss time.
