For the third time this season the Jaguars will be without running back Leonard Fournette due to a hamstring strain, coach Doug Marrone announced on Wednesday.

Fournette missed the Jaguars' Week 2 win over the Patriots and the Week 3 loss to the Titans because of the injury that he suffered in the first half of the season-opening win against the Giants. He returned in the Week 4 victory over the Jets and rushed for 30 yards on 11 carries, but he left in the first half because of hamstring tightness.

Jacksonville hits the road to face Kansas City in Week 5. With Fournette sidelined, the Jaguars will turn to T.J. Yeldon to handle a bulk of the running back responsibilities. This season, Yeldon has rushed for a team-high 205 yards and a touchdown, and he has 14 catches for 125 yards and two scores. Quarterback Blake Bortles is Jacksonville's next leading rusher with 132 yards.

The Jaguars are 3-1 this season and tied with the Titans at the top of the AFC South.
