Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette appears ready for a return after practicing in full on Wednesday for the first time in six weeks.

Fournette has not played since Week 4 because of a hamstring injury and has appeared in only two games this season, rushing for 71 yards on 20 carries. After aggravating the injury on multiple occasions, he has remained out as the team tries to avoid any future setbacks.

Fournette participated in individual drills Monday as the team exited its bye week, but Wednesday was his first full session.

Also practicing in full on Wednesday was quarterback Blake Bortles, who is battling a left (non-throwing) shoulder injury sustained in the fourth quarter of the team's Week 8 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in London.

"It's just banged up," Bortles told reporters Wednesday. "No different than anybody else getting a nick or a bruise or whatever."

Cornerbacks A.J. Bouye (calf), who sat out the game in London, and Quenton Meeks (knee) missed practice on Wednesday.

The Jaguars (3-5), who are on a four-game losing streak, return to action Sunday against the Colts in Indianapolis.

Jacksonville traded for Carlos Hyde while Fournette was out and also has T.J. Yeldon available in the backfield. Yeldon leads the team with 334 rushing yards on 81 carries.
