Maurice Jones-Drew injury: Jaguars RB suffers tendon strain

Bob Stanton-USA TODAY Sports

Maurice Jones-Drew may be available for the team's Week 3 game against the Seahawks.

Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley revealed at his Monday press conference that running back Maurice Jones-Drew suffered a tendon strain that ended his game on Sunday against the Oakland Raiders.

Jones-Drew, 28, limped off the field in the second quarter after he was awkwardly twisted to the ground by a Raiders defender. Originally ruled as probable to return, he was downgraded to questionable, but never took another snap in the game.

The three-time Pro Bowl selection has suffered season-ending leg injuries in two of the last three seasons and has a contract set to expire following the 2013 season. Regardless, Bradley wouldn't rule out Jones-Drew for the team's Week 3 game against the Seattle Seahawks.

"We feel like we have a chance to have him on Sunday," Bradley told reporters.

Jones-Drew finished Sunday's game with 27 yards on 10 rushing attempts. He accumulated 45 yards on 15 attempts in a Week 1 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
