No Timetable For RB Maurice Jones-Drew’s Return

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew mentioned that there’s no timetable for his return at this point, via the Jaguars twitter account.

Jones-Drew is currently sporting a boot on his injured foot.

This season has to be a huge disappointment for Jones-Drew, seeing as it started with hi holding out for a new contract, which ended up with him rejoining the team at the start of the season minus the contract extension that he was seeking.

Rashad Jennings will step in and handle the workload for the foreseeable future.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew‘s foot injury does not require surgery, and is not Lisfranc related. Schefter adds that Jones-Drew will miss “multiple games.”

ESPN’s Ed Werder reports that RB Maurice Jones-Drew is back at the team’s facility watching tape and receiving treatment on his injured foot.

This is obvious a positive sign, but several reports have already suggested that Jones-Drew will be out for Sunday’s game against the Packers.

Jaguars HC Mike Mularkey mentioned that it looks like RB Maurice Jones-Drew has an arch sprain, via the Florida Times Union.

There’s still a chance that he could be dealing with the dreaded Lisfranc fracture. An arch sprain is still significant enough to force him to miss some time, but a Lisfranc injury would most likely end his season.

At this point, the Jaguars will focus on having Rashad Jennings prepared to take over as their featured running back for Sunday’s matchup against the Packers.

Jaguars HC Mike Mularkey mentioned that they haven’t ruled out the possibility that RB Maurice Jones-Drew could have a  Lisfranc injury, per Adam Schefter.

If this ends up being the case, it would be a huge loss for the Jaguars. Rashad Jennings figures to see a lot of playing time even if Jones-Drew is able to return at some point this season.

John Oehser is reporting that Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew will most likely be out for an extend period of time after he left yesterday’s game with a foot injury.


This is bad news for the Jaguars as Jones-Drew was one of the only explosive players they had on offense. With the diagnosis of his foot injury still unknown, the hope is that Jones-Drew did not suffer a Lisfranc injury, as that could end is season.

Rashad Jennings figures to replace Jones-Drew as the Jaguars feature running back for the foreseeable future. So far this season, Jennings is averaging 2.6 yards per carry, with 90 yards rushing on 34 carries.

  • Wasn’t MJD one of the nitwits barking about Cutler not playing in the 2nd half of the NFC Championship game last year? Didn’t Cutler get pulverized by Suh on MNF, but still come back in and finish up the game? Jay Cutler should tweet “I’m playing this week, how about you?”

      MJD tweeted: “All I’m saying is that he can finish the game on a hurt knee…I played the whole season on one.’’
