Jacksonville Jaguars running back Travis Etienne left the team's Week 12 game with a foot injury that kept him on the sidelines the rest of the way. This put his Week 13 status up in the air.

Travis Etienne Injury Update

While we had heard encouraging signs from head coach Doug Pederson throughout the week on Etienne, on Friday we got something more concrete. Pederson said that Etienne is "good to go" for Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions.

Etienne has really broken out in his first season on the field (he missed all of last season with injury), especially after the team traded away James Robinson to the New York Jets. Etienne has gained over 100 yards on the ground in three of his last four games (excluding Week 12 when he left early).

The Jaguars and Etienne are preparing for a Week 13 matchup with Lions, where Jacksonville is a 1-point road underdog, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL odds.
