Life for the Jacksonville Jaguars only gets tougher this Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks, but it sounds like Jones-Drew will be back on the field. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday that Jones-Drew is "good" after his MRI results came back. The plan is to play on Sunday, according to a source who spoke with MJD.
It's been a rough start to the year for the Jaguars and Jones-Drew. He is averaging fewer than 3 yards per carry thus far and doesn't look fully recovered after missing the offseason because of foot surgery in December.
Jones-Drew not only is playing for the only franchise he's ever called home, but he's playing for a potential contract on the free-agent market after the season.
