Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew has been listed as "out" by the team on Friday's injury report. The Jags' running back missed practice Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and will be a scratch in Week 8. Unfortunately for the Jaguars, the team will be without their star player against the Green Bay Packers.
Fantasy Analysis: Jones-Drew began the 2012 season with a lengthy hold out, but eventually returned to the team. He had a mediocre start to the season after leading the league in rushing last year, and now with a foot injury, MJD's fantasy value is taking all kinds of hits.
Rashad Jennings will fill in for Jones-Drew this week and maybe two more following. Since Jones-Drew was lucky enough to avoid the dreaded Lis Franc injury, fantasy owners should hang tight with MJD. Keep him on your bench and monitor his practice participation.
