Jacksonville Jaguars running back Chris Ivory was admitted to the hospital early Sunday morning prior to the Week 1 matchup against the Green Bay Packers. Ivory has been listed as inactive for the Jaguars with a general medical issue, according to Jaguars’ Senior Manager of Public Relations, Tad Dickman.

With Ivory out, T.J. Yeldon will be the starting running back for the Jaguars for Week 1. “Ivory will be reevaluated for his medical issue late this week and his availability for Week 2 will hinge on what he learns”, according to NFL Insider Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Implications: Due to his recent medical issue, Chris Ivory is inactive for Week 1 and his status for Week 2 hinges on his progress through the week. Being highly owned in season-long leagues, fantasy owners are scrambling to find an alternative as a RB or Flex option. With his injury being a new development, Ivory’s status may be a question mark for the following weeks as well.
