MJD doesn’t need surgery, but will miss multiple games

AP

All things considered, the news on Maurice Jones-Drew might have been as good as expected.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Jaguars running back does not have a Lisfranc injury, and won’t need surgery to fix the foot problem that kept him out of all but two plays at Oakland Sunday.

Jones-Drew will still cause him to miss “multiple games,” which leaves Rashad Jennings as the starter for the Jags.

Considering it’s still unclear whether doctors are going to allow Jags quarterback Blaine Gabbert to play, it’s a blow they can hardly afford.

  1. I’ve never been in that situation — but my first thought is, why wouldn’t you want to play in that situation?

    Clearly, he’s a QUITTER.

  2. Not sure why it matters…what, like they will suddenly make a push for the playoffs if he comes back? His return will just be like re-arranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.

  3. Why is MJD a quitter? Because he held out?

    Look what he’s done for that franchise and throughout his career. He’s taken a beating for a franchise who doesn’t wanna pay his market share but could cut him at any time (less the gentlemen’s agreement that you don’t cut an injured player)

  4. in other news, jay cutler told a reporter today if MJD needs anything he’ll be there to support him… LOL lets see you tough out a serious injury MJD like you said you would when you bashed him on twitter after he tore mcl (s?)

  5. MJD was a jerk for calling out Cutler, but Cutler was one game from the Big Dance.

    Totally different.

  6. Not different at all actually. If you are injured to the point where your team is worse off with you on the field then you have to come out. Why put your team in a worse place just to prove that you are tough? MJD is a complete idiot and got his comeuppance.

  7. MJD basically got tea bagged by Cutler. Always nice to see an NFL loudmouth get his comeuppance.

  8. Jay Cutler say: hey Maurice, why didn’t you go back into the game when your team needed you? Fyi- I didn’t quit, I was removed by my coaching staff jackwagon!

  9. Glad to see all the dr’s in here. Hey get your foot stomped on good and then go running and have someone stomp on it a few times and get back on here and see if you are a man or crying like a little girl we know you to be.

  10. As a Bears fan that has lived in Jacksonville and some around MJD, I don’t think MJD will ever get it. I hope for the jags he gets right, but Cutler is a true pro.

    i dont think anyone is trying to be doctors here. mjd is a fan favorite and a NFL favorite among fans. but when he came out of his way to ignorantly call out cutler with a torn mcl (which a QB obviously needs to have full use of) then u deserve what you get when u get hurt on a part of a body you need to be great and ppl call you out.. i hope MJD has a speedy recovery. but i dont like ignorant people who call out people who get seriously hurt bec it seems like everyone else was and he jumped on the band wagon..karma

  12. Hey jagsfanugh….go strain your MCLs and try to avoid an NFL pass rush while planting and making throws all over a field with an OL that sucks! Then you’ll understand why MJfD was out of his place to go call Cutler out and why now he is getting all this grief!

  13. Had the exact same injury 1 year ago. Admittedly I am not a professional athlete but it took almost 2 months to be able to run without adjusting my stride. I still feel it occasionally now, best wishes to MJD and the Jags fans, long road ahead.

  14. So basically it’s just a matter of being able to play through pain. Not a serious injury. So why isn’t he playing through pain. He went out of his way to take a shot at Cutler – he should man up, take a needle and play. Or tweet-apologize to Cutler any time.
