According to John Oehser of Jaguars.com, head coach Mike Mularkey has not ruled out RB Maurice Jones-Drew for Week 16′s game.
Mularkey said team wants to work MJD some Tuesday. Says MJD’s pain has gotten a little better. Not ruling him out for Sunday. #jaguars

The past few weeks Mularkey has classified Jones-Drew’s status as “very questionable,” so the fact that Mularkey did not mention Jones-Drew as such is an improvement.
It’s a good sign that Jones-Drew could come back and help the poor offensive play by the Jaguars, but it could come at the cost of the teams’ 2013 draft pick.
