Jaguars coach Gus Bradley remains uncertain if Maurice Jones-Drew will play Sunday versus the Tennessee Titans in Jacksonville.
Although “improved with rehab,” the 28-year-old Jones-Drew continues to battle a balky hamstring.
Jones-Drew, who has been competing with a surgically repaired foot, is in the final year of a $31 million deal.
Earning $4.95 million this autumn, the former Bruin’s rushed 208 times for 719 yards and five touchdowns over 13 games.
A three-time All-Pro who captured the 2011 NFL rushing crown, Jones-Drew has also caught 34 balls for 239 yards.
The Jaguars are 4-10 and fielding the league’s most inept offense.
For the betterment of all parties involved, the Jaguars should shelve Jones-Drew and use youngster Jordan Todman.
Jacksonville’s long removed from playoff contention and the organization needs to evaluate their personnel against Tennessee and Indianapolis.
Capable of completing the 40-yard dash in 4.39 seconds, Jones-Drew will bolt as a free agent in the spring.
Hence, the Jaguars must forget about Maurice Jones-Drew, regroup, and concentrate on finding their future running back.
