JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars don't expect running back Leonard Fournette to play in the season finale at Houston.
Coach Doug Marrone listed Fournette (ankle/foot) as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Texans (10-5). The second-year pro has missed practice all week.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars filled out their practice squad by signing 10 players they cut a day earlier.
The most notable additions Sunday were quarterback Tanner Lee, a sixth-round draft pick from Nebraska, undrafted rookie cornerback Quenton Meeks and running back Brandon Wilds.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars waived two former draft picks in final roster cuts Saturday, including quarterback and sixth-round draft pick Tanner Lee.
The Jaguars also cut speedy cornerback Jalen Myrick, a seventh-round pick in 2017. Undrafted rookie Tre Herndon, from Vanderbilt, beat out Myrick for the fifth and final cornerback spot.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed four of their seven draft picks, including fourth-rounder Will Richardson.
The Jaguars announced Thursday they also signed sixth-round quarterback Tanner Lee, seventh-round punter Logan Cooke and seventh-round linebacker Leon Jacobs.

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — The biggest question new Nebraska coach Scott Frost faces as he enters spring practice: Who will play quarterback?
Sophomore Patrick O'Brien, redshirt freshman Tristan Gebbia and incoming freshman Adrian Martinez all are being given an equal chance to win the job.
OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska quarterback Tanner Lee will skip his final year of eligibility and enter the NFL draft.
The move was not unexpected in the wake of coach Mike Riley's firing and Scott Frost's hiring.
"After weeks of prayer and consideration with my family, I've decided to enter the NFL Draft and pursue an opportunity that I feel is the best for myself and my family at this time," Lee said in a Twitter post on Thursday.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska quarterback Tanner Lee is in the concussion protocol, and coach Mike Riley said Monday that redshirt freshman Patrick O'Brien would prepare as if he will be the starter for Saturday's game at No. 13 Penn State.
A Minnesota player fell on Lee's head shortly before halftime Saturday, Riley said, and O'Brien played the entire second half of the 54-21 loss.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska quarterback Tanner Lee has gone from being a liability the first month of the season to giving the Cornhuskers their best chance to win.
Unless the Huskers (4-4, 3-2 Big Ten) suddenly find a running game, how they finish the season will depend on whether Lee keeps playing like he did against Purdue.
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — With Nebraska's season in flux, Tanner Lee had some Saturday night fun.
The reads slowed down. The receivers came up big. He made sure the sideline and first down markers were a factor on almost each of those last seven plays. And when that final drive ended, the Cornhuskers two-game losing streak was history.
Lee's second touchdown pass of the night, a 13-yarder to Stanley Morgan Jr. with 14 seconds left, gave Nebraska a season-saving 25-24 victory at Purdue.

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) — When Nebraska ended its nonconference schedule with a loss to Northern Illinois, it didn't just drop the Cornhuskers to 1-2. It also served as an early turning point in the season and cost athletic director Shawn Eichorst his job.
Life in the Big Ten has been much easier.
Last week, the Cornhuskers pulled out a back-and-forth victory against Rutgers. But on Friday, they were in total control.
All eyes will be on the quarterbacks when Nebraska and Illinois meet on Friday night in Champaign, Illinois. It might not be pretty.
The Cornhuskers (2-2, 1-0 Big Ten) and Illini (2-1, 0-0) have been hamstrung by shoddy quarterback play so far. Nebraska coach Mike Riley continues to voice strong support for Tanner Lee as his starter. Illinois coach Lovie Smith said he's sticking with Chayce Crouch, though Jeff George Jr. did play all but one series of the second half in the Illini's last game.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — An air of "here we go again" hung over Memorial Stadium on Saturday when Rutgers' Kiy Hester intercepted Tanner Lee early in the second half and ran 33 yards to the end zone to give the Scarlet Knights a three-point lead.
A week earlier here, Northern Illinois had two pick-sixes against Lee in one of Nebraska's most humiliating losses in years.
When Lee trotted onto the field for the next series against the Scarlet Knights, he got booed, and the Cornhuskers went three-and-out.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Northern Illinois is now 4 for 5 against the Big Ten under coach Rod Carey, so if you were looking for shocked expressions after the Huskies' 21-17 upset of Nebraska, you had to go to the Cornhuskers' locker room.
EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — Maligned last season, Oregon's defense thwarted Nebraska's comeback.
The Huskers were down 42-14 at the half but rallied with three unanswered touchdowns. Then Tanner Lee was intercepted on what would be Nebraska's final drive of the game, and the Ducks held on for a 42-35 victory on Saturday.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Even though Mike Riley is beginning his third year at Nebraska, there's a sense around the program that 2017 represents a new start.
Riley finally has the pro-style quarterback he prefers in Tanner Lee . He has a new defense, with first-year coordinator Bob Diaco switching from the 4-3 to 3-4 base alignment. Besides Diaco, there are two other new assistants.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Tanner Lee hasn't taken a snap in a game for Nebraska, yet the fan base has already deemed him the quarterback who can return the Cornhuskers to national relevance.
The hype has been fueled by the words of a couple former NFL personnel men, one of whom predicted the transfer from Tulane would be a top NFL draft prospect.
Lee's statistics in his two years with the Green Wave, however, would not indicate immediate success in the Big Ten.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska opened preseason practice Sunday with a new quarterback, a new defensive system and a fan base hoping third-year coach Mike Riley is getting closer to ending a conference championship drought nearing two decades.
The Cornhuskers are picked third or fourth in the Big Ten West in most preseason polls after losing four of their last six games in 2016. Riley downplayed the notion this is a crucial year for his program.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska cornerback Chris Jones will miss at least half of the season after knee surgery.
Coach Mike Riley said Saturday that Jones had surgery to repair his left meniscus. Recovery normally takes four to six months.
As a junior last season, The 6-foot, 195-pound Jones had three interceptions and 10 pass breakups. He also was recognized with honorable-mention All-Big Ten honors.
