The hearing on Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette‘s one-game suspension

will happen on Tuesday , and a ruling could come as soon as Tuesday night. (Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that James Thrash is handling the appeal.)If the suspension stands, Fournette could have a problem far more significant than the nearly $100,000 in salary that he’d lose. Per multiple league sources, Fournette’s contract contains sufficient language to support an argument that the suspension voids the remaining guarantees in Fournette’s four-year rookie contract, wiping out a $7 million obligation that extends over 2019 and 2020. (Fournette would have the ability to challenge the voiding of the guarantees; giving the magnitude of the payment, there would be no reason not to.)While this doesn’t mean that the Jaguars would cut Fournette if his guarantees void, the Jaguars would have the ability to do so with no further financial obligation Niles Paul Color Rush Jersey , ducking $2.9 million in 2019 and $4.1 million in 2020. And they wouldn’t have to sever ties after the current season. They could give him another year at $2.9 million, with a chance to persuade the Jaguars to keep him at $4.1 million for 2020.The voiding of the guarantees also would open the door to a potential trade, since his next team wouldn’t be committed to a firm $7 million over two years.The flexibility that would come from the voiding of the guarantees becomes a factor in the broader assessment of Fournette as a player. He missed three games in 2017 and he has missed six games in 2018, all due to injury. If there’s a new coach or a new G.M. or a new executive V.P. of football operations in Jacksonville, there will be less of a compulsion to throw good money after a potentially bad draft pick.However it plays out, this is precisely why Bears linebacker Roquan Smith held out. Broad language that voids guarantees can become that “gotcha” item a team can hold over a player, giving them a blank check to get out from under an otherwise guaranteed contract whenever they want. 5 things to look for as the Jaguars take on the ColtsThe Jaguars (3-5) are in a position no one ever expected. After failing to win a game in the month of October D.J. Hayden Jersey , the defending AFC South Division champions are desperately trying to turn things around and get back into the win column. Here are five things to watch as Jacksonville travels to Indianapolis to take on the Colts (3-5) in Week 10. As the two teams battle to get out of the basement, the Jaguars are coming off a bye week and need to regroup to salvage the season.Jaguars treasure gifts from Army veteran Sean KarpfLike most players, Blake Bortles will keep items to remember moments from his football career.A jersey signed by a teammate. A game ball or helmet. Maybe a pair of cleats he wore in a certain game.None of those things, however, will mean as much to the Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback as the folded United States flag encased in a shadow box and several military patches that sit in his locker. They were gifts from Sean Karpf, one of the team’s strength and conditioning associates and a U.S. Army veteran who lost his lower left leg while on patrol in Afghanistan in 2012.Will the Jaguars make the playoffs in 2018?Statistically, it’s still possible. In fact , with eight games to go, it’s technically correct to say that the Jacksonville Jaguars still control their playoff hopes.If you win out, that is.It’s unlikely an 11-5 team misses the playoffs and with the Jaguars sitting at 3-5 with eight games to go, that’s the goal. I don’t think 10-6 will automatically get you in this year because some of these divisions are pretty top heavy. The tie breakers could be killers.And in other Jaguars news ...A.J. Bouye not playing against the Colts is “news to Doug Marrone”.Would the Jaguars benefit from signing Josh Lambo to a contract extension before the offseason?The Jaguars said they plan on going “full-bore” with Leonard Fournette if he’s healthy.Here are 3 players to watch during the second half of the season.Doug Marrone didn’t think his Jaguars team “deserved” a national audience and he believed they were going to get flexed out before they actually did.Do you want some bold predictions for the Jaguars vs. Colts game? You got ‘em!
