Earlier today, Jacksonville Jaguars announced that star running back Leonard Fournette was set to be inactive or their Sunday matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals for violating team rules:

Well, now we know what those team rules were.
According to Field Yates of ESPN, Fournette missed the team photo earlier this week. Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reports the same and adds that Fournette also missed a workout and treatment for the ankle injury that kept the star running back out in Week 7.
Doug Marrone is trying to establish a culture alongside disciplinarian Tom Coughlin and sending a message that no player is excluded from punishment not even the team’s best offensive player.
The Jaguars will turn to Chris Ivory, TJ Yeldon and Corey Grant to pick up the slack on Sunday.
