Jacksonville Jaguars running back Travis Etienne will likely miss his rookie campaign after suffering a Lisfranc injury in Monday night’s preseason game against the New Orleans Saints.

Etienne, who was the Jaguar’s No. 25 overall pick in this year’s draft, suffered the injury in the second quarter of Monday night’s game. He had just one yard on one attempt prior to going down with the injury.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the injury, saying Etienne will undergo surgery to repair the injury.

Etienne, who played college football at Clemson alongside No. 1 overall pick Trevor Lawrence, was expected to play a large, versatile role in the Jacksonville offense.

With him on the sidelines, the Jaguars will now turn to James Robinson and Carlos Hyde to carry the load.

The Jaguars wrap up the preseason on Sunday, August 29 against the Dallas Cowboys. The regular season will begin on Sunday, September 12, against the division rival Houston Texans at NRG Stadium.
