Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew won't need surgery on his injured left foot, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Tuesday. According to Schefter, Jones-Drew was diagnosed with a sprain that will keep him out for at least a few games. The running back reportedly does not have a Lisfranc injury, which is a displacement of bones within the foot. A Lisfranc injury is usually a season-ender. Earlier Tuesday, the Jaguars signed second-year running back Keith Toston to give them depth at the position. Rashad Jennings took over as the lead back after Jones-Drew was hurt in Sunday's game against the Raiders, and Jennings ran 21 times for 44 yards in Jacksonville's 26-23 overtime loss at Oakland. Jones-Drew led the NFL in rushing last season, then held out of training camp this season in a contract dispute. He has 414 rushing yards this year. Running back isn't the only area of concern for the Jaguars as they prepare to play the Packers in Green Bay on Sunday. Jacksonville quarterback Blaine Gabbert has a torn labrum in his left (non-throwing) shoulder, ESPN.com's Ed Werder reported. ProFootballTalk.com indicated through its sources that Gabbert plans to play Sunday. Chad Henne replaced Gabbert in the loss to Oakland, and he completed nine of 20 passes for 71 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions. Henne would start again vs. Green Bay if Gabbert is sidelined.
