Leonard Fournette was sitting in his wrecked Mercedes-Benz on Interstate-295 earlier this week Authentic Lamar Jackson Jersey , waiting for the police to arrive, when he got an unusual request. One of the first responders wanted Jacksonville’s rookie running back to sign something.
It wasn’t a hat, a jersey or a football, either. The man asked Fournette to autograph the damaged bumper off his $200,000 car.
”The bumper was on the ground and he just came out of nowhere like, `Man, can you sign this for me?'” Fournette said Thursday. ”I’m like, `You want me to sign a bumper?'”
Fournette said it’s ”the first and hopefully last” automotive part that garners his signature.
If the former LSU star keeps playing like he did at Pittsburgh last week, there’s no telling what he’ll be asked to sign next.
Fournette ran for 109 yards and three touchdowns against the Steelers despite re-injuring his right ankle in the first half. It was his most productive game in three months, a positive sign for the Jaguars (12-6) as they prepare for the AFC championship game at New England (14-3).
”I feel good in spite of the ankle and stuff,” Fournette said. ”Just taking care of my body, but overall I feel good.”
Jacksonville’s ground game looked better than it has in weeks. The NFL’s top rushing attack stalled down the stretch , averaging 3.58 yards a carry over the final seven weeks of the regular season, and was mostly inept in a wild-card victory against Buffalo until quarterback Blake Bortles started scrambling.
Fournette’s return to form couldn’t have come at a better time.
”Collectively, as a group, I feel like everyone came to play their part,” Fournette said. ”Everyone come out with it on their minds Authentic Tremaine Edmunds Jersey , especially from the get-go with being physical.”
Fournette averaged 4.4 yards a rush against the Steelers, finding room to run outside and turning small holes between the tackles into big gains. He scored three times, using his speed to get to the corner on one and leaping over defenders and across the goal line for another.
”We challenged these guys early,” offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett said. ”Just because you have success one week doesn’t mean you’re going to have success the next. It’s just one of those things where it’s on the line, on Leonard, on the group, on Blake, all the things that were going on.
”It’s about wanting to do it and understanding what you’re trying to do.”
Now the Jaguars hope to have a repeat performance against the Patriots, who ranked 20th against the run this season.
Fournette looked as healthy as he has since initially spraining his right ankle in a loss to the Los Angeles Rams in mid-October. Fournette ran for 130 yards in that game, which followed a season-high, 181-yard performance the week before at Pittsburgh.
Fournette missed three of the next eight games because of the ankle and a bruised quadriceps muscle. And in the games he did play, instead of ripping off long runs and grinding out tough yards, Fournette was slowed to a crawl.
The Jaguars were ecstatic to see him get back on track last week even though he left the game briefly to get his ankle checked out and taped up.
Concerns returned Tuesday after his fender-bender.
”You know what I always say about car accidents?” coach Doug Marrone said. ”It’s one of those things. You can get into a car accident and feel pretty good, (and) two days later, you wake up and I don’t know. That hasn’t happened yet. I never put that past car accidents.”
Fournette was limited in practice this week, but insists he’ll be good to go for the game.
His car won’t be so lucky. It’s in the shop getting repaired.
”The bumper’s probably like $50,000 by itself Authentic DJ Moore Jersey ,” Fournette said. ”I don’t know what insurance they have or who they’re with, but …”


KANSAS CITY, Mo. — It wasn’t Friday the 13th, but it was a nightmare nonetheless for Danny Duffy.
On May 13, the Kansas City Royals 29-year-old left-hander took the mound at Progressive Field in Cleveland. After 87 pitches in 3 1/3 innings, Duffy was finished.
“What do I remember from the last one?” Duffy said. “I try to forget it. It was probably the worst start I’ve had in a long timfe.”
To say it was bad would be an understatement. Duffy gave up nine runs, eight hits and five walks and hit a batter. He yielded a three-run homer to Jose Ramirez in the second inning.
Manager Ned Yost mercifully replaced him in the third when Yan Gomes belted Duffy’s final pitch over the center-field fence with two runners on base.
Duffy gets a chance for a reprieve on Tuesday when he faces the Indians in the second game of the three-game series.
“I’m looking forward to getting out there,” he said. “It’s another challenge and I’m up for it. I’m going to do everything I can to execute every pitch and stay within my strengths.”
Duffy has not fared well against the Indians in his career. He is 2-8 with a 5.06 ERA, surrendering 39 earned runs in 69 1/3 inning in 17 career outings, 13 of them starts.
This season, he is 4-7 with a 4.94 ERA in 17 starts, allowing 95 hits, walking 46 and hitting two batters in 94 2/3 innings.
Opponents are batting .259 against Duffy. That breaks down to .264 by right-handed batters and .233 by left-handed batters. Lefties have hit .188 against Duffy since 2016.
Duffy has pitched better recently. He began the year 1-6 with a 6.88 ERA in his first 10 starts, giving up 39 earned runs in 51 innings. He is 3-1 with a 2.68 ERA in his past seven starts, allowing 13 earned runs across 43 2/3 innings.
In his last start, Duffy picked up a 5-4 decision over the Milwaukee Brewers on the road. He permitted one run, five hits and two walks with seven strikeouts in six innings. He stranded two runners in the first and third inning. Jesus Aguilar’s home run in the sixth was the only run Duffy allowed.
Duffy will be looking for his first Kauffman Stadium victory this season. He is 0-3 with a 6.32 ERA in six home starts. His last home victory was Aug. 22 Authentic Donte Jackson Jersey , 2017.
The Indians, who won the series opener 9-3 with Francisco Lindor driving in a career-high seven runs, will counter with rookie right-hander Shane Bieber, who is 3-0 with a 2.22 ERA in his first four career starts.
“I just want to go out there and continue what I’ve been doing so far,” Bieber said. “That’s just throwing three or four pitches for strikes and getting ahead, and trying to put guys away when I can.
“Really, it’s just a matter of trusting (catchers) Yan (Gomes) or Berto (Roberto Perez). They always know exactly what they’re doing, in case I don’t. They make up for my lack of experience.”
Bieber has plus breaking pitches.
“Right now, I’m relying on the slider and curveball,” he said. “I’ll use the fastball if they’re sitting on those two. I feel comfortable throwing those three especially. My change-up is a work in progress. All my pitches are a work in progress, obviously, but that one especially.
“Keeping them off balance with all three or four pitches is the best thing. If I can do that, things will be a little bit easier. That’s the goal for every starting pitcher.”
