As he left the press conference, Mularkey added he still hasn't ruled out Jones-Drew starting against the Vikings.
Jennings has added another subplot to the MJD contract drama with a strong preseason. In three games, Jennings has carried the ball 36 times for 175 yards, an average of 4.9 yards per carry.
Jones-Drew -- the NFL's defending rushing champion -- has accumulated more than $1 million in fines over the first 32 days of his holdout. It remains to be seen how the Jaguars intend to handle that substantial piece of financial housekeeping if Jones-Drew decides to re-enter the picture.
Until then, Mularkey only can work with the parts he has. The train is leaving the station, remember?
UPDATE: Mularkey clarified his comments later Monday, saying Jennings would start.
