It sounds like the Jaguars will have running back Travis Etienne available when they take on the Lions this weekend.

Via Demetrius Harvey of, head coach Doug Pederson initially said in his Friday press conference that Etienne is “good to go” for Sunday’s contest. Pederson then added that the running back felt good after Thursday’s practice and the head coach is “optimistic” about Etienne’s availability.

Etienne has been a limited participant on the Wednesday and Thursday practice reports with a foot injury. He missed much of last week’s game with the issue.

With Etienne likely to play, Pederson noted that fellow running back Darrell Henderson is likely to be inactive for Week 13.

The Jaguars’ full injury report will be released later on Friday.

  1. If you asked literally anyone at the beginning of the season, they’d have said this one would be a laugher for many reasons. It’s quickly become a test of which team has made the most strides this year. They’re both playing much better ball than the last 10 years or so.
