Jerick McKinnon News

Jerick McKinnon Limited By Groin Injury On Wednesday

Wednesday, December 6, 9:41 PM

Kansas City Chiefs running back Jerick McKinnon (groin) got in a limited practice on Wednesday ahead of a Week 14 matchup against the Buffalo Bills. McKinnon practiced on a limited basis last Thursday and Friday ahead of Week 13's game against the Green Bay Packers but he ended up being inactive in the Chiefs' loss. He will now look to get back on the field in Week 14. If McKinnon doesn't end up playing, look for Isiah Pacheco (shoulder) to pick up some extra work in the passing game, although Pacheco missed Wednesday's practice with a shoulder injury. If both backs end up missing Week 14, look for the Chiefs to utilize some combination of Clyde Edwards-Helaire and possibly a player from their practice squad.

Travis Etienne News

Travis Etienne Jr. Still Managing Ribs Injury

Wednesday, December 6, 7:14 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars running backs Travis Etienne Jr. (ribs) and D'Ernest Johnson (knee) were both listed as limited practice participants on Wednesday. Etienne went into Monday night's overtime loss to the Cincinnati Bengals with a questionable tag because of his ribs but ultimately played and handled 15 touches for 79 yards and a touchdown. Both he and Johnson should be fine to play in Week 14 against the Cleveland Browns. However, with quarterback Trevor Lawrence (ankle) likely to miss a few weeks due to a high-ankle sprain he suffered on Monday night, all of Jacksonville's offense is likely to suffer with backup C.J. Beathard leading the charge. The 24-year-old Etienne should keep a heavy workload for however long Beathard fills in, but he'll be more of a volatile RB2 in fantasy, especially this weekend in a tough matchup against the Browns.
