Maurice Jones-Drew has been sidelined with a sprained foot. He was hoping to return by next week, but as of Thursday, Jones-Drew's own assessment of his timetable was foggy. He hopes to return in a couple weeks, but there is no exact date for his return.
According to an interview Jones-Drew did on Fox Sports Radio, Jones-Drew confirmed the injury isn't the type to end his season. But he also went on to say that with a foot injury at his position, being hampered by this injury isn't something he wants to deal with upon his return. He may wait until he is 100%.
“It’s just one of those things that’s going to take a little bit of time but it’s doing much better," Jones-Drew said.
Jones-Drew has been consistently one of the top running backs in the league. Fans love him for his play and his love of fantasy football. Jones-Drew is an admitted fantasy junky. He always drafts himself in his leagues. For now thug, he'll have to keep himself on the bench (does that even make sense?!).
Drew has been in the NFL for seven seasons now. All seven of those seasons have been spent with the Jaguars. Jones-Drew has averaged 73.4 yards per game in his career. He's had three straight seasons with more than 1,300 yard rushing coming into this season. That includes his incredible 2011 performance in which Jones-Drew rushed for 1,606 yards.
