Jaguars news roundup

Some Jacksonville Jaguars news from around the internet you may have missed.

At 2-12, an uncertain future for Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey |

Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey knows firsthand that a first-year head coach doesn’t always survive if he doesn’t win enough. He was the tight ends coach in Miami under Cam Cameron in 2007, went 1-15 and was fired after one year. With the Jaguars 2-12 after losing three games in a row to teams with losing records, Mularkey doesn’t know if he’s going to survive to coach the Jaguars for a second season.

Jaguars center Brad Meester wants to return next season |

Brad Meester is the senior member of the Jaguars, but he's not ready to retire even though he's finishing his 13th season this year. Meester said Monday he will return if the Jaguars want him back next year. He said he's in a "wait and see'' mood to see whether the Jaguars want him to return after they do their post-season evaluation. Meester, who is usually given Wednesdays off from practice, said, "I feel as good as I have in quite a while.'' "I would love to be back,'' he said.

Jaguars still hungry

Cecil Shorts won’t say it’s easy. At 2-12 in mid-December, nothing’s easy, but there’s an opponent Sunday and another after that, and because it’s the NFL, you work and prepare and plan to play another game. That’s where the Jaguars stand with two games remaining. So, while Monday – as has been the case with many Mondays this season – was difficult and disappointing, it was also a work day. So, that’s what the Jaguars did. They went to EverBank Field, worked, and tried to put in perspective the first 14 games.

Inside the Jaguars, 12/17

Maurice Jones-Drew could get more work Wednesday than he has in a while. But according to Head Coach Mike Mularkey, that doesn’t mean the three-time Pro Bowl running back will play Sunday. And Mularkey in fact said Jones-Drew remains questionable for Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots at EverBank Field. Jones-Drew has missed the last eight games with a sprained foot, and Mularkey said the plan is for Jones-Drew to work some Tuesday to determine where his pain tolerance is with the injury.
