MJD on crutches on sideline


At this point, the only truly interesting part of the Jaguars-Raiders game is who is going to be able to walk out in one piece.

The Jags are winning 20-13 in the third quarter, and they’re doing it without a pair of key starters.

Maurice Jones-Drew hasn’t returned after injuring his left foot on the second play of the game. He was just standing on the sidelines with a pair of crutches while wearing in a pair of sweats and a walking boot.

Quarterback Blaine Gabbert has also stayed out after leaving in the first half after being slammed to the turf on his left shoulder.

The Jags are leading, and there is only a vague indication the Raiders are going to get back into this. But the long-term condition of Jones-Drew is a concern, and worth monitoring in the post-game.

    This is why he held out for more money. Sorry, folks, thumbs-down this if you want to. But that’s why they do it.

    When does Jay Cutler tweet that MJD is soft?

    If MJD becomes ineffective due to this injury, I am sure the Jaguars will honor his contract.

    Hey, if he can stand, he can play, tough guy like him…Unless he’s the one we should compare to Urban Meyer…

    Okay, unlike MJD when he blasted Cutler, I really am joking…Hate to see anyone hurt, hopefully the injuries to him and Gabbert are not too serious.

    The Raiders are bad… really bad.

    But what are the Jaguars after losing to a really bad team?

    Worst win I’ve ever seen. They are really going to have to step up if they hope to beat the Chiefs next week. When do we start talking draft?

    What was it that MJD tweeted about Cutler? Something like he would have to be carried off the field… funny how he is now the one standing on the sidelines. Very ironic.

    Hate to see people get injured, but man, he pressed his luck tweeting about Cutler. Had to know that eventually those comments would come back to bite him.
