Rashad Jennings is expected to miss the Jaguars' Week 2 game against the Texans with a knee injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Rashad Jennings is not expected to play Week 2 against the Houston Texans after injuring his knee in the Jacksonville Jaguars' opener Sunday, the Florida Times-Union reports. The Jags are still waiting the results of an MRI to determine definitively whether Jennings is out and for how long.

Analysis: With Jennings out, you can expect a heavy dose of Maurice Jones-Drew against Houston. Head coach Mike Mularkey hoped to bring Jones-Drew along more slowly after a lengthy holdout, making Jennings a viable fantasy option even in standard leagues. That is no longer the case, with MJD now expected to have a stranglehold on the running back position in Jacksonville. Jennings is only worthwhile to MJD owners in need of a handcuff, at this point.
