The Jacksonville Jaguars could be without stars on both sides of the ball on Sunday afternoon.

Running back Leonard Fournette is questionable to play against the Tennessee Titans with the hamstring injury that kept him out of last week's win. He has been limited in practice all week.

Ramsey is a surprise addition to the injury report, as he was not listed all week.
