As per Rapoport’s tweet, Fournette is set to provide depth behind the standout James Cook. Having signed the 28-year-old Fournette to their practice squad on October 31, there has been anticipation among Bills Mafia about when he would finally see action on game day.

Splitting his six seasons evenly between the Jacksonville Jaguars and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Fournette has accumulated 1,132 carries for 4,478 yards, recording 34 rushing touchdowns and four fumbles. Additionally, he has made 312 receptions (on 388 targets) for 2,219 yards, including seven touchdown receptions.
