Jaguars’ Travis Etienne suffers serious Lisfranc injury that will end his season as team places him on IR
The Jacksonville Jaguars are “likely” to lose rookie running back Travis Etienne for the season after the first-round pick suffered a Lisfranc injury against the New Orleans Saints on Monday night.
So… what exactly is a Lisfranc injury?
According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, the Lisfranc joint complex is a meeting in the arch of the foot of bones and ligaments, particularly the Lisfranc ligament, a possible injury to the region of the foot can be either a fracture, sprain or ligament tear.
The running game is now firmly in the hands of second-year running back James Robinson, who had a surprisingly very, very good season last year. Carlos Hyde will be the primary backup with Devine Ozigbo filling the change-of-pace role.
Etienne was one of the most explosive players in the country over the past four years. He led all players in college football with 55 runs of 20 or more yards from 2017 to 2020, rushing for 2,053 yards and 21 touchdowns — an average of 37.3 yards per carry on those big plays.
