Maurice Jones-Drew may return to practice Friday: Fantasy implications

Joe Robbins

Maurice Jones-Drew may return to practice Friday for the Jaguars, head coach Mike Mularkey said Thursday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Maurice Jones-Drew could return to practice Friday for the Jacksonville Jaguars, head coach Mike Mularkey said Thursday. Jones-Drew has been held out of practice since suffering a foot injury in Week 7 against the Oakland Raiders.

Mularkey also said that he considers Jones-Drew "questionable" for Sunday's game against the New England Patriots. If he can't play, Montell Owens is expected to once again handle rushing duties out of the Jaguars' backfield. No. 2 running back Rashad Jennings has yet to pass concussion testing.

Fantasy Impact: Mularkey has called Jones-Drew questionable before, so take Thursday's quote with a grain of salt. If MJD is able to participate in practice Friday, however, fantasy owners should take notice. It still doesn't mean he will play, however. Luckily, Sunday's game is a 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff, giving owners plenty of time to adjust their lineups accordingly when inactive lists are released.
