Don't expect Maurice Jones-Drew back for Week 11 when the Jaguars travel to play the Houston Texans as head coach Mike Mularkey ruled out the running back for play on Monday, according to Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union.

Jones-Drew has been out since suffering a foot sprain in the opening minutes of a Week 7 game against the Oakland Raiders, although NFL Network's Alex Flanagan reported during Week 10's loss to the Colts that he was about two weeks away from a return. In his absence, the Jaguars have turned to Rashad Jennings who has 40 carries for 131 yards and zero touchdowns in the three starts in replacement of MJD.

In some positive injury news for the Jaguars, though, Mularkey said that Jones-Drew is the only player he can rule out and a decision hasn't been made yet for any other player, according to Vito Stellino of the Times-Union, which means the Jaguars could see the return of Greg Jones and Dwight Lowery to the lineup.
