Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette said Thursday he expects to be a game-time decision for Sunday's AFC Championship Game rematch with the New England Patriots due to a hamstring injury he suffered in the season opener, according to ESPN's Michael DiRocco.

Fournette added that he resumed running in Thursday's practice.

The second-year pro was hurt in the second quarter of the Jaguars' Week 1 win over the New York Giants and wasn't able to return. He had nine carries for 41 yards before exiting and giving way to T.J. Yeldon.

Fournette was held relatively in check by the Patriots in the AFC title game while nursing an ankle issue, scoring one touchdown but averaging just over three yards per carry on 24 rushes.
