Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew has still yet to report to the Jaguars, holding out in the hopes of receiving a new contract despite two-years left on the deal he signed in 2009. Jaguars owner Shad Khan was asked about Jones-Drew being absent on Tuesday at the press conference announcing the Jaguars London series.
"Train is leaving the station," said Khan. "Run, get on it."
It's obvious that the Jaguars are not going to budge on their stance to not give Jones-Drew a new deal with two years left, but the real question remains is how long Jones-Drew is going to continue his holdout. It's getting to a critical point to where it may affect Jones-Drew's ability during the season.
As it stands so far through the preseason, the Jaguars offense has had no trouble rushing the football without Jones-Drew, nor has their offense struggled to move the football and score points.
