Maurice Jones-Drew misses practice Thursday: Fantasy return unlikely Sunday

Rob Foldy-US PRESSWIRE

Maurice Jones-Drew missed practice Thursday for the Jaguars, along with Rashad Jennings. We break down the fantasy implications.

Maurice Jones-Drew missed practice Thursday for the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union. Jones-Drew is still dealing with a foot injury that has kept him out since Week 7 against the Oakland Raiders.

Rashad Jennings also missed practice as he works his way back from a concussion. If the Jags' top two running backs are ruled out for Sunday's game against the New England Patriots, Montell Owens will likely once again handle rushing duties by himself.

Fantasy Impact: You'll want to take a look at Friday's injury report just in case, but as of now it looks like neither Jones-Drew nor Jennings will suit up in Week 16. If you need a fantasy starter out of the Jags' backfield, then Owens is your man. He had 156 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown off 27 touches over his last two games.
