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.
