Maurice Jones-Drew injury update: Jaguars RB has ‘ligament sprain’


It has been a rough few years for Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew due to holdouts and injuries, and the 2013-14 NFL season isn’t off to a much better start after Jones-Drew went down with a lower leg injury during the team’s Week Two match up against the Oakland Raiders on Sunday afternoon.

There is good news, however, as Jones-Drew and Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley say that he feels better today after some rest.

Jones-Drew has been diagnosed with a “ligament sprain,” according to Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union.

There is no timetable for Jones-Drew’s return, so consider him day-to-day until we have a more firm update on the severity of his injury.

In the meantime, avoid placing Jones-Drew in your starting line up for the team’s Week Three game — especially considering their tough match up against the Seattle Seahawks, who have proven themselves as one of the best teams in the league.

It’s going to be a long week — and season — for Jacksonville as they look to avoid another embarrassing loss.
