Mularkey not ready to rule out Rashad Jennings yet

Maurice Jones-Drew might not be the starter in Jacksonville quite yet.

Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey said an MRI on running back Rashad Jennings’ knee did not show significant damage, and he wasn’t ready to rule him out of this week’s game against the Texans, according ot Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union.

Mularkey said Monday that both Jennings and right tackle Cameron Bradfield could miss a few weeks, but had a more optimistic take Wednesday.

“[The MRIs] just confirmed that they’re not prolonged injuries,” Mularkey said. “We’re going to monitor them day to day and hold them out today. But they’re not out of the game as of yet.”

Jennings held onto the starting job after Jones-Drew’s holdout, but Jones-Drew finished the game after Jennings was hurt in the first half.

While the league’s leading rusher from last year should reclaim the job anyway, Jennings’ status could push him up the depth chart sooner than anticipated.

    Please be true. Offense moves better w/ him. MJD should be the red zone/goaline back.

    I just want to have Mularkey some success with the jags. He seems to be a good modest coach, good for the community. I hope this happens.

    Enough about Jennings! Didn’t anyone see 3rd and goal from the 1 and see him get eaten alive by the D?

    MJD is the Man in Jacksonville and league-wide. No more Mularkey! No more punt team for MJD. Give him the ball, let him ball out and be a winner.

    Jennings? Seriously?

    I saw enough of MJD running over our DBs last Sunday to make this argument irrelevant.
