Even so, the Jaguars’ three-time Pro Bowl running back’s status remained uncertain Friday as the team wrapped up its final full practice of the week at San Jose State University. Jones-Drew, the NFL’s leading rusher in 2011, missed practice Wednesday and Thursday with a strained tendon in his ankle, and Jaguars Head Coach Gus Bradley said Thursday Jones-Drew probably wouldn’t play Sunday in Seattle unless fully healthy. Bradley said Jones-Drew worked on a limited basis Friday, and will be listed as questionable.

After not only making it through a full week of practice, but looking better each day, coach Pete Carroll announced that Clemons is ready to play.
