According to Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone, neither Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette or cornerback D.J. Hayden will play on Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium.

Fournette, a second year player who gained 1040 yards in 13 games as a rookie last season, injured his hamstring in the Jaguars’ season opener against the New York Giants. He started last Sunday’s game against the New York Jets, but aggravated the injury and was taken out of the game.

Hayden, who entered the league with the Oakland Raiders in 2013, joined the Jaguars as a nickel corner this season, after spending 2017 with the Detroit Lions. He is suffering from a toe injury that has limited him in the early part of the season. He last played in Week 2 against the New England Patriots, and was credited with a sack and four tackles.

Jacksonville beat writer Daniel Popper is reporting that in addition to Fournette and Hayden, three other Jacksonville players are sitting out Wednesday’s practice.
