Fournette was among Tampa Bay's inactives for Week 14, ruled out of the action against Minnesota as a healthy scratch. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Fournette's exclusion from the game action was a coach's decision.
Fournette's 2020 season has been largely unproductive, with the running back averaging 3.9 yards per carry on 69 attempts in 10 games as part of a backfield that also includes Ronald Jones. Fournette hasn't broken 50 yards rushing in a game since Nov. 2 against the Giants, and his workload has fallen sharply since that point, taking just 19 carries from Weeks 9-12.
Jones, meanwhile, rushed for 192 yards in Week 10 against Carolina, and racked up 90 yards on 19 carries between Weeks 11 and 12 -- both three-point losses to the Rams and Chiefs.
