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.
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.
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.
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.
MJD (foot) is probably going to be out an extended period. Mularkey says will be out Sunday. #kaguars

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.
