JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette has apologized for violating a team rule that prompted coach Doug Marrone to make him inactive against Cincinnati.
  
Fournette also offered some insight into what may have been a reason for his benching. Writing on his Twitter page, the rookie vowed to be on time for Jacksonville's next game Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers.
  
Marrone declined to say exactly what Fournette did to be deactivated for the game.
  
Fournette was on the sideline during the 23-7 victory but not in the locker room afterward.
  
Fournette leads the team with 596 yards rushing and seven touchdowns. He is expected to address the situation publicly Wednesday.
