"I think what we do like is the progress he's made from the last two days to today," Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley told reporters on Friday. "We figure another day, and then Sunday we will work him out and see how it goes."
Jones-Drew suffered a tendon strain in his ankle in Week 2 after he was awkwardly brought to the ground by a diving Oakland Raiders defender. After sitting out practice on Wednesday and Thursday, Jones-Drew participated in Friday's session on a limited basis.
Ruled out for Sunday are four players for the Jaguars, including tight end Marcedes Lewis. After working his way to a doubtful status in Week 2, the decision to list Lewis as out is a little odd, especially after he practiced on a limited basis on Thursday and Friday.
Also listed as out is quarterback Blaine Gabbert, who received several stitches in his hand after suffering a cut in Week 1 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
