Maurice Jones-Drew injury: Jaguars RB hurts ankle, questionable to return

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The Jacksonville running back was originally listed as probable to return, but has since been downgraded as the Jaguars trail in Oakland.

Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew left Jacksonville's Week 2 game against the Raiders with a sprained ankle and has been announced as questionable to return. The team's official Twitter account originally announced Jones-Drew as probable but he has since been downgraded.

Jones-Drew has run for 27 yards on 10 carries thus far in the game, as the Jaguars trail Oakland, 13-3, in the third quarter. He had just 45 yards on 15 carries in Jacksonville's season-opening loss to the Chiefs.

The veteran running back missed all but six games last year with a foot injury and is in the final year of his contract. He was looking for an extension last offseason but never received one and opted not to hold out this year as he returned from injury. The 28-year-old running back out of UCLA led the league in rushing in 2011 but has run for just 486 yards since.

Jordan Todman and Denard Robinson may split carries in his absence.
