Inefficient after injury scare
Etienne rushed 20 times for 56 yards while catching four of six targets for 30 yards in Sunday's 24-21 win over the Texans.
Etienne exited for a few minutes in the first half to be evaluated for a chest injury, per Cameron Wolfe of NFL Network, but he returned to the game and was stuffed from the 1-yard line on the final play before halftime. Jacksonville worked it down to the 1-yard line again in the third quarter, and Etienne was again denied on first-and-goal before the Jaguars went to the air for a go-ahead Calvin Ridley touchdown. Etienne has at least 17 touches in nine of 11 games as the clear top option in Jacksonville's backfield; however, he has exceeded 56 rushing yards only once in his last six games heading into a Week 13 home contest against the Bengals on Monday Night Football.
