Despite the Jacksonville Jaguars injury issues at running
back it doesn’t appear they will be getting Maurice Jones-Drew back this
weekend. Coach Mike Mularkey told reporters, including Michael David Smith of
ProFootballTalk.com, that Jones-Drew is “very questionable” for Sunday’s
matchup against the New York Jets.
Just not a very good chance: Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey
said today that Jones-Drew is “very questionable” for Sunday’s game against the
Jones-Drew has been sidelined for six straight games due to
a foot injury, and it’s not looking like he’ll be back on the field this
weekend to help his team take on the Jets.
Jacksonville lost backup running back Rashad Jennings to a
concussion last weekend. Given it’s a head injury, his status for this weekend
seems to be very questionable.
If Jones-Drew and Jennings are both out against the Jets,
the Jaguars will likely go with a platoon of Montell Owens and Richard Murphy,
according to Smith.
