As the dust settled and Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley told the media at his Monday press conference he thought there was both progression and regression on the team’s performance from Sunday.He also said he hoped the injury to Maurice Jones-Drew was something that would still allow him to play this coming weekend when the Jaguars travel to Seattle to face Bradley’s former team, the Seahawks.“He has a tendon strain,” said Bradley Monday afternoon. “All accounts are that looks pretty good – I know he felt good this morning,” Bradley said Monday during a press conference at the team hotel in Fremont.That’s good news for us.Since the injury is not as severe as it could have been, the hope is the team’s biggest draw could be on the field Sunday.While the Jaguars could have the services of their running back, the odds of them being able to go into the game without Blaine Gabbert behind center for the second week in a row. Gabbert received 15 stitches after the opener against Kansas City. Some of the stitches will come out Tuesday, but Bradley all but ruled Gebbert out for Sunday. Chad Henne will start again in his place.According to jaguars.com, Gabbert said the injury was, “coming along.”“The plan right now is to take it day by day and see how it feels,” he said.The Jaguars play in Seattle, against a team that beat them 41-3 the last time the two teams played each other. It will be the first time that Bradley faces his former team where he served as defensive coordinator before making his way to Jacksonville as head coach.He said playing Seattle will be a test because, like playing against Oakland and Terrelle Pryor, quarterback Russell Wilson presents many challenges for the young defense. Bradley explained to the media at the press conference, that Wilson is a talented quarterback who will extend the play of offense.It will be the team’s responsibility to slow him and the Seahawks’ offense down.In other Jaguars news, taken from Jaguars.com…* The Jaguars were awarded second-year cornerback Jamell Fleming off waivers from Arizona and signed guard Jacques McClendon to the 53-man roster.  * First-year wide receiver Jeremy Ebert and rookie cornerback Marcus Burley were waived, and first-year defensive end Chris McCoy was signed to the practice squad.
