Maurice Jones-Drew injury: Jaguars RB 'pretty questionable'

New, comments

Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew is "pretty questionable" for Sunday's game, whatever that means.

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew hasn't played since he injured his foot in Week 7 against the Oakland Raiders. Oddly enough, Jones-Drew still leads the Jaguars in rushing yards despite missing the past nine games. At his Monday press conference, Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey classified Jones-Drew as "pretty questionable" for Sunday's season finale against the Tennessee Titans.

Personally, I find it unlikely Jones-Drew will play in the game, and he doesn't need to. I understand Jones-Drew wanting to play this season and come back from the injury, but there's no point right now to risk further injury to his foot heading into the offseason.

Following his Pro-Bowl year in 2011, Jones-Drew rushed for 414 yards on the 2012 season before injuring his foot. Rashad Jennings, who's also been injured, is second on the team with 283 rushing yards, though he has more carries on the season than Jones-Drew.
