Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew says he will miss at least a few more weeks (Credit: AP Photo)
Maurice Jones-Drew has not played since week seven against the Oakland Raiders. During that game, Jones-Drew injured his foot and has been out since week seven. The Jaguars have been struggling since Jones-Drew was injured, not winning a game since week seven.
With a week twelve match-up against Tennessee this Sunday, Jones-Drew will still be out. During a radio interview this week, Jones-Drew reported that he will be out for at least a “few more weeks”.
“It’s frustrating not to be out there with your teammates,” Jones-Drew said. “But it’s part of the game you have to deal with sometimes. It’s the first time dealing with it, but I’m doing everything I can on my side to get back and be ready to go.”
At this point in the season, with the Jaguars not in the hunt for the playoffs, Jones-Drew should just sit out for the rest of the year.
The Jaguars should be playing for the number one draft pick and making sure Jones-Drew is healthy for 2013.

Forget about the 2013 NFL draft, because the Jacksonville Jaguars already have a Franchise in Chad Henne. This is going to develop a lot of controversy, but give the concept a chance. The Jags are not exactly a team that just needs one quarterback and they are back on top. It’s going to be a 2-3 year process and it definitely won’t include Maurice Jones-Drew, but that high draft...

Chad Henne was named the starter in Jacksonville this week, after Blaine Gabbert injured his shoulder again as well as a contusion on his throwing elbow. Henne was going to start no matter the prognosis of Gabbert’s health, but since Gabbert went on IR, there was no other option. Henne had a great performance after he came in, throwing for 354 yards and four touchdowns. By...

If there’s one thing I enjoy in football, it’s divisional match ups. It has the ability to throw everything you know about stats, logic, and talent out the window and focus soley on playing the game. Take for instance the match up between the (4-6) Titans and the (1-8) Jaguars.
Last week, the Jaguars gave the AFC leading Houston Texans all they could handle and then some in an...
