Yeldon has appeared on the Jaguars' injury reports the last few weeks with an ankle concern, so the same issue is presumably behind his absence from the team's first practice of the week. Despite occasionally missing or being limited in practices throughout the season, Yeldon hasn't missed any game action, and there wasn't any indication that he suffered a setback coming out of Sunday's 40-7 loss to the Cowboys. It's thus expected that Yeldon will be ready to go by the time the Week 7 matchup with the Texans arrives, though there's a chance he could head back into the No. 2 role out of the backfield. Though Leonard Fournette (hamstring) isn't in line to practice Wednesday, coach Doug Marrone expressed optimism Monday that Fournette might be ready to return from a two-game hiatus this weekend.

Yeldon averaged a healthy 5.1 yards per carry, but the home team raced out to a big lead and caused the Jags to abandon the ground game. Given the game flow he disappointingly wasn't used often as a receiver, which he had been in games past. Yeldon still managed to compile 70 scrimmage yards in limited usage, which bodes well for him next week against the Texans if he reprises a featured role. Working against him is the possibility that Leonard Fournette (hamstring) could be ready to return, potentially putting a serious damper on his fantasy value.

Leonard Fournette (hamstring) has already been ruled out and is in clear danger of missing time beyond Sunday. With Corey Grant (foot) hitting injured reserve earlier this week, Yeldon is a safe bet to dominate the snaps out of the Jacksonville backfield, as recent signees Jamaal Charles and Dave Williams probably need some time to get up to speed. Charles hasn't played in a game since Week 15 of last season, and Williams is a seventh-round rookie who was signed off the Broncos' practice squad Tuesday.

I think the big thing here is less about the players who are out and questionable, but just the sheer number of starters that are banged up for the Jaguars.

4-of-5 starting offensive linemen are dealing with some sort of injury. That is not ideal going up against a powerful and underrated defensive front.

T.J. Yeldon will be carrying the load for the Jaguars against a porous Chiefs run defense. He needs to bring his A-game and if an ankle is bothering him it could allow the Chiefs some better opportunities to defend the run]]>

<![CDATA[Will continue to fill in for Fournette]]> Yeldon (ankle) does not carry a Week 5 injury designation after practicing fully Friday.

Yeldon is slated to lead the Jaguars' backfield against the Chiefs on Sunday, with Leonard Fournette (hamstring) already ruled out for the contest. Corey Grant is on hand to work in a change-of-pace role, but Yeldon is in line to do the heavy lifting this Sunday against a Kansas City defense that has allowed an average of 123.2 rushing yards through four outings. Only four teams have yielded more to date.
