Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew Questionablefor Week 16
Nearly two months later, Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey remains coy about the foot injury that has kept running back Maurice Jones-Drew out for eight consecutive games.
Mularkey said Monday at EverBank Field that Jones-Drew did not sustain any broken bones when he went down in the first play of the Jaguars’ Week 7 overtime loss at Oakland. He wouldn’t confirm or deny Jones-Drew sustained ligament damage.
“I can tell you this: Based on his position and what he has to do, this kind of injury is different than for maybe a lineman,” Mularkey said. “Everybody is different with their pain tolerance. I can’t compare him to anybody else because I don’t know how he’s feeling. Some guys come back from torn ACLs [Minnesota’s Adrian Peterson] and lead the league in rushing; some guys take longer to come back.”
Mularkey said Jones-Drew will be worked out Tuesday to gauge his progress and labeled him as “questionable” to play Sunday against New England.
“Obviously we would like to have him back because he’s a special back [at] full go or almost at full go,” Mularkey said.
