Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey said Monday that team doctors haven't ruled out the possibility of a Lisfranc injury for Jones-Drew, according to The Associated Press.

If it's a Lisfranc issue, Jones-Drew is facing surgery and the end of his season. New York Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes was sent to injured reserve earlier this month with the same injury.

Jones-Drew hurt his left foot during the Jaguars' 26-23 overtime loss to the Oakland Raiders. He downplayed the injury after the game, saying he "just got rolled up." Mularkey said there was a chance the Jaguars could sign a running back this week.

The coach had more promising news on quarterback Blaine Gabbert, who also exited Sunday's game after suffering a left shoulder injury.

Mularkey said "there's a good chance (Gabbert will) be able to play this week."

Chad Henne got his opportunity to create a quarterback controversy Sunday, but he didn't make much of it, finishing 9-of-20 passing for 71 yards.
