Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew should be good to play in the team's Week 3 game against the Seattle Seahawks, according to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Jones-Drew ran for just 27 yards on 10 attempts in a Week 2 loss to the Oakland Raiders.
Jones-Drew is dealing with a foot injury that has seemed to slow him down through the first two weeks of the season. He was also injured throughout the offseason, and questions regarding his conditioning came up when he did eventually return to the team.
Fantasy impact: Jones-Drew has averaged just 2.9 yards per carry through two contests and may not be at full strength even though he is playing. All signs point to the Jaguars being the worst team in the NFL this year, which means they'll be playing from behind a lot. That makes it tough to hand the ball to Jones-Drew 25 times a game like he's done in the past. Add to that the Seahawks have won 10 straight home games and own one of the league's best defenses, and Jones-Drew's prospects don't look good in Week 3.
