Maurice Jones-Drew injury update: Fantasy status in neutral for another week

Al Messerschmidt

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew will be out again this Sunday. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Jacksonville Jaguars star running back Maurice Jones-Drew will be out another week for his team. MJD is suffering from a nagging foot injury, but is expected to return before the end of the season. He missed practice again this week, as he is still in the healing process.

In his absence, running back Rashad Jennings will carry the workload.

Fantasy Analysis: Another dreaded week for fantasy owners seeing Maurice Jones-Drew on their bench when the Jags have a game. For a lot of reasons, this year was just MJD's year -- it didn't start well and it doesn't look like it's going to end well.

The fact that he missed practice isn't a great sign of progress, but it's nothing that wasn't anticipated. Even in MJD's absence, don't start Jennings, as he will be faced with the daunting Texans defense in Week 11.
