Jacksonville Jaguars running back
Maurice Jones-Drew will be worked out today in order to gauge his recovery
progress, and coach Mike Mularkey told reporters, including Ryan O’Halloran of
The Florida Times-Union, that he’s questionable to play this weekend against
the New England Patriots.
“I can tell you this: Based on his position and what he has
to do, this kind of injury is different than for maybe a lineman,” Mularkey
said. “Everybody is different with their pain tolerance. I can’t compare him to
anybody else because I don’t know how he’s feeling. Some guys come back from
torn ACLs [Minnesota’s Adrian Peterson] and lead the league in rushing;
some guys take longer to come back.”
Jones-Drew has missed two months of
action after sustaining a foot injury earlier this season. Given the Jaguars
place in the standings there’s been question whether or not they’ll simply hold
Jones-Drew out for the remainder of the season.
Despite his extended absence,
Jones-Drew continues to lead the team in rushing yards with 414.
