The Jaguars fear Maurice Jones-Drew may have the dreaded Lisfranc injury. We break down the fantasy implications.
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Jacksonville Jaguars have not ruled out the possibility of RB Maurice Jones-Drew having the dreaded Lisfranc injury. Jones-Drew has already been ruled out for Week 8 after leaving last Sunday's game with a foot injury. He was later spotted in crutches and a walking boot. Rashad Jennings took over for MJD.
The situation is still evolving, so we'll keep you updated as soon as we can. If he does have the Lisfranc injury, this will definitely end his season.
Fantasy Impact: Terrible news for fantasy owners. MJD was the only reliable option in Jacksonville's anemic offense, and his absence blows a hole in their entire gameplan.
Fantasy owners should pick up Jennings now if they haven't already done so. He's no MJD, but he will get the workhorse treatment with the Jags' QB situation in shambles. Consider him a low-end RB2 against the Packers in Week 8.
