Jacksonville Jaguars RB Travis Etienne (foot) said he is about 85 percent to 90 percent recovered from his Lisfranc injury.
Huddle Up: Etienne should be ready for training camp and could also participate in some offseason workouts. There is a good chance that he will share playing time with James Robinson in 2022 and can be at least a No. 3 running back in fantasy leagues.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Travis Etienne (foot) likely will return to the field at some point in April, according to head coach Doug Pederson.
Huddle Up: Etienne missed the entire 2021 season because of his foot injury, but it appears like he will be able to participate in most of the offseason workouts. He likely will share playing time with James Robinson in 2022 and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in fantasy leagues.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Travis Etienne (foot) told The Players Podcast host Darien Rencher recently that he has been running 'for a while' and cleared to do basic exercises such as squats within the last week or so.
'My foot is doing much better. Really just got back into the gym for the first time and I'm squatting for the first time this past week. So that's been good and I've been running for a while now. I'm kind of getting to that 80% to 85% range. Definitely, just heading in the right direction, and as you know with this injury you have to take it day-by-day man. You can't skip no days,' Etienne said.
Huddle Up: Unless James Robinson (Achilles) can make a Cam Akers-like return to the field, Etienne may be needed more than expected early in the season. Even after Robinson returns, it would be difficult for the Jags to keep Etienne in a limited role given how much explosiveness he should bring to the offense. Assuming his foot checks out by training camp, the second-year pro has a decent chance to be a viable flex option in 2022.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Travis Etienne (foot) said he should be ready for the start of training camp.
Huddle Up: Etienne missed his entire rookie season because of a foot injury but should be ready to play in 2022. He could have a significant role because James Robinson is also recovering from a serious injury, so fantasy players should monitor his situation. He could be a possible No. 3 fantasy back in leagues next season.

Updating previous reports, Jacksonville Jaguars RB Travis Etienne (foot) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Aug. 24.
Huddle Up: The move officially ends Etienne's season before it can even get started. While the good news is that this injury happened in August, Lisfranc injuries can be tricky and might affect his burst even into next season. The bad news for his fantasy managers is that a player they likely invested a fifth- or sixth-round pick in this summer turns out to be a wasted pick. James Robinson should vault up boards as a result of this injury, although it would be premature to expect a repeat of last season with Carlos Hyde around to steal a few snaps.

Updating earlier reports, Jacksonville Jaguars RB Travis Etienne (foot) will miss a minimum of 12 weeks with a significant tear of his plantar fascia. He'll have surgery as soon as possible with a chance to come back later in the season.
Huddle Up: Carlos Hyde has RB3 value in PPR formats, and James Robinson looks to be a strong RB2 with staying power. Etienne can be stashed in keeper leagues.

Updating previous reports, Jacksonville Jaguars RB Travis Etienne (foot) will have tests Tuesday, Aug. 24, that will likely determine how long he's out with a Lisfranc injury. X-rays were negative, which leads belief that it's just a sprain.
Huddle Up: Carlos Hyde's value catapults for at least the first four weeks as it will take some time before Etienne will be full speed when he's healthy. View Hyde as a PPR flex option for the foreseeable future. Etienne still has a chance to be an RB3 in PPR leagues when it's all said and done with a speedy recovery. James Robinson's value doesn't change all that much, but he could have a longer shelf life with Etienne up against the 8-ball entering the year.

Updating previous reports, Jacksonville Jaguars RB Travis Etienne (foot) sustained a mid-foot sprain during the team's game Monday, Aug. 23, and is expected to be sidelined indefinitely, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Huddle Up: Obviously this isn't great news for Etienne, but minus a more concrete timeframe for recovery it would premature to significantly adjust his value. Keep an eye out for news on Etienne's condition, though bear in mind that NFL teams aren't obligated to provide much in the way of injury updates during the preseason.
