Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette threatened fan after loss

Monday Rewind Five day-after thoughts from the Jaguars’ embarrassing loss to the Titans

Monday Rewind Five day-after thoughts from the Jaguars’ embarrassing loss to the Titans

Near the end of the game Thursday, a video (via TMZ) captured Fournette getting into it with a fan. TMZ reported he told the allegedly heckling fan before that "Listen, you're too old for that". "I met with Leonard", said Marrone.

Fournette declined to speak to the media as a group Monday. "It's a racial slur".

"Facts, you're too old for that", Fournette says while sitting on the team bench ... "That's kind of a tough one, when it's a racial slur, and that's what the player tells you", he said. "That's what the player tells you".

It remains to be seen if he'll face any punishment for his interaction with the fan in Tennessee - but it won't make much of a difference either way as far as the Jaguars' season is concerned.

Nuggets sign veteran guard Young
Last season, as a member of Golden State, he appeared in 80 games (eight starts) and averaged 7.3 points per game. Still, the 33-year-old Young is a proven shooter who can help the Nuggets stem the tide of all these injuries.

"I trust the player", Marrone said, adding that he hoped stadium security at Nissan Stadium will be involved. "No one wants that stuff around this game".

Marrone said Fournette wasn't aware of the existence of a video when the two spoke Monday.

Leonard Fournette could be in hot water with the National Football League after a video emerged this week that showed him threatening a fan in Nashville during the waning moments of Jacksonville's 30-9 loss to Tennessee in Week 14. Typically an impact on the ground, Fournette was limited to just 14 carries for 36 rushing yards. He received a one-game suspension for his role in the fight.

Aside from sidelined for six games with an injury, the former LSU rusher was also forced to miss action in a seventh contest due to his temper.
