Maurice Jones-Drew injury update: Tailback sheds crutches, almost fantasy ready

Al Messerschmidt

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew hopes to return soon. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew has shed his crutches and walking boot, per Ryan O'Hallaran. The Jags' regular feature back has been sidelined with a foot injury, but luckily enough, it was not season-ending. In fact, MJD hopes to return by Week 13.

The Jaguars will face the Tennessee Titans this Sunday and will be without him again. But Jones-Drew is aiming to return sooner rather than later.

Fantasy Analysis: If you are in the fantasy postseason and have done so with MJD on your bench; bravo. For those fantasy players, having Jones-Drew return to your lineup could be game-changing. He should be able to play a couple games to end the season with Jacksonville -- games which could benefit fantasy owners.

And those who have adapted without him, via trade or waiver wire, will be glad to get him back. Watch the status of MJD, but keep him on your bench for now.
