Jacksonville Jaguars MJD shut down
Reports are surfacing this evening that Jacksonville Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew is going to be shut down for the rest of the preseason schedule. National Football Post is reporting that several NFL sources have confirmed that Maurice Jones-Drew has undergone a minor knee procedure regarding his lateral meniscus.
According to the site, a source says that if this weekend’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were a regular season game, Jones-Drew would be able to play. Jones has skipped practice all week.
I can understand the Jaguars wanting to rest their real only offensive threat. Jones-Drew is coming off career highs of 1391 rushing yards and 15 touchdowns. If the Jaguars were to be without the services of MJD in the backfield, the Jaguars hope of winning games would seriously be hindered. Jaguars QB David Garrard isn’t striking fear in the hearts of opposing defenses, MJD is the only thing that keeps defenses honest.
