MJD sprains ankle in Jaguars' loss; X-rays negative

The hits keep coming for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Running back Maurice Jones-Drew left Sunday's game with a sprained ankle in the second quarter versus the Oakland Raiders. He did not return, and the Raiders won 19-9.

Jones-Drew was seen having his left ankle re-taped on the sideline just before halftime. Jaguars coach Gus Bradley announced after the game that X-rays were negative, and The Florida Times-Union reported Jones-Drew would have an MRI. He managed just 27 yards on 10 carries before the injury.

Jordan Todman took over as the Jaguars' lead back with Jones-Drew sidelined.

The injury left Jacksonville without three of its top four offensive weapons, as Jones-Drew joined tight end Marcedes Lewis (calf) and wide receiver Justin Blackmon (suspension) on the sideline.

On Sunday, it showed. Through two and a half quarters, the Jaguars scored just three points and had trouble moving the ball against the Raiders' defense. They finally found the end zone in the fourth quarter.
