According to Jay Glazer of FOXSports and Tania Ganguli of The Florida Times-Union, Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew could have knee surgery in the off-season. Jones-Drew hasn't been officially ruled out for Sunday's game yet, but the general feeling is that he's not going to play. Jones-Drew was one of four players who didn't practice yesterday (David Garrard, Mike Sims-Walker, and Justin Durant). Of those four, Jack Del Rio said Sims-Walker is the most likely to play, and we all know now that David Garrard won't.

There were some false reports to begin the season that Jones-Drew had surgery on his knee during the pre-season, which is why he barely played. Jones-Drew did have a knee injury at the time, but he didn't have surgery, he just had it looked at. "It wasn't hurt to the point that I couldn't play on it but we knew that if I did play on it this could happen. I chose to do it. I wanted to play football and I love playing the game. This is the price you pay sometimes," Jones-Drew told Ganguli.

It's possible Jones-Drew will need surgery after the season, but he doesn't want to. "I'm going to talk to a bunch of doctors and see what's going on," Jones-Drew told Ganguli last week. "If I don't have to, I'm not. But we'll see."
