It’s not looking good for Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette to play Sunday afternoon against the Patriots.

Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Jags have activated running back Brandon Wilds from the practice squad, which seems to indicate there's some question with Fournette's availability. If he were to miss the game, it would be a huge blow to the Jags offense.

In last years AFC title game, Fournette accumulated 76 rushing yards and 13 receiving yards.
