Jaguars’ Leonard Fournette apologizes for Week 9 absence

Leonard Fournette has learned a valuable lesson.

The Jaguars running back on Tuesday tweeted an apology for missing the team’s win over the Bengals on Sunday and promised to be on time when Jacksonville hosts the Chargers this weekend.

Boston was supposed to sink from the top of the Eastern Conference after Gordon Hayward’s season-ending ankle injury just minutes into last month’s opener at the Cleveland Cavaliers. Instead, it has been more than a full calendar month since Boston lost a game, and the Celtics stand three wins shy of matching a franchise record for consecutive wins.

With a win on Wednesday night at the Miami Heat, the Celtics would match the third-longest winning streak in team history (17 games, 1959-60 season). While Stevens won’t let his team look beyond Wednesday’s contest, the only teams with longer streaks in Celtics history were the 1981-82 squad that won 18 straight and the 2008-09 team that took 19 in a row.

Davis was released by the Colts on Thursday after nearly six seasons with the team and is scheduled to undergo season-ending groin surgery that it is expected to sideline him six to eight weeks. Still, Davis doesn’t rule out getting back on the football field this year.

“It is a possibility,” a source said of the chance that Davis plays again this season.

After missing the first three games of the season with a hamstring injury, Davis was held out of the Colts’ Week 9 win over the Texans for a what the team announced as a non-injury related issue. He wasn’t pleased with the way the move was handled and said he felt more like he was benched than given time to heal.

Davis, 29, was set to become a free agent at the end of the season after signing a four-year contract worth $36 million with Indianapolis. He had been with the Colts since 2012 after the Dolphins originally selected him with the No. 25 overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft.broncos_070
