The Jaguars (4-3) made the surprising announcement 90 minutes before kickoff. Ivory wouldn't find pay dirt himself, but he did more than an enough to offset the loss of Fournette for the ball game.
Even without star rookie running back Leonard Fournette, who was inactive for this game for breaking a team rule, Jacksonville stomped the Bengals to the tune of 23-7. Starting right guard A.J. Fox Sports' Jay Glazer added that the running back also missed a workout and treatment for an ankle injury. Linder had been out the last three games with an illness with Shatley starting at center in his place.
Thirty seconds before halftime, this happened. The Bengals earned a 24-23 win over Indianapolis last week behind a pair of touchdown passes from quarterback Andy Dalton, who is turning his season around after a bad start.
The Bengals gained only 148 yards as Andy Dalton went 10-of-18 for 136 yards. In the days leading up to the game Ramsey said that he was looking forward to going up against a perennial pro Bowler in Green. Green had 38 catches for 572 yards and four touchdowns coming into the weekend. The Jaguars had outgained the Bengals, 217-37 when Lee scored.
