Maurice Jones-Drew possible, Blaine Gabbert likely out for Week Three


Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew has a left ankle “strain,” head coach Gus Bradley said at his Monday press conference, according to John Oehser of

According to Oehser and the club’s Twitter feed, Bradley indicated Jones-Drew could play in Sunday’s game at Seattle.

Jones-Drew rushed for 27 yards on 10 carries in the Week Two loss at Oakland before leaving the game with the ankle injury.

While the Jaguars haven’t ruled out Jones-Drew, they may be without quarterback Blaine Gabbert (lacerated hand) for another week. According to the Jaguars’ Twitter feed, Bradley said Gabbert wasn’t expected to play.

If Gabbert cannot play, Chad Henne will get another start. He completed 25-of-38 passes for 243 yards with one touchdown in Jacksonville’s 19-9 loss at Oakland on Sunday.

    Jones-Drew might sit out not because of an ankle strain, but because he watched Frank Gore last night and is thinking twice about going up against the Seattle defense. Jones-Drew is very doubtful i would say!

    Seattle is going to KILL the Jaguars. No let down here.

    MJD is dooming my fantasy team, how about you?

    The Jags are going to lose to the Hawks by no less than 20 points.

    That ankle is going to be limiting MJD’s carries until his contract expires. Or the Jags offer him a new one.

    I think the Jags can upset the Hawks. Bradley knows the opposition so well. Everyone going to be surprised and big money made by anyone taking Jax.

    My guess is like….60-0 seahawks

  7. orivar says: Sep 16, 2013 4:47 PM

    The Jags can upset the Hawks but it most likely will be due to them treating it like a trap game with the Texans coming up the following week.

    Will Wilson even play the whole game? lol

    Too bad Gabbert won’t play. Might have seen the worst beating in NFL history.

    There must have some good “sticky-icky” Jacksonville. Knowing the team is one thing, but having the talent to compete is something else. Gus did a solid job coaching our defense but Seattle fans were happy to see him go. No way that you leave teams 3rd and long as much as we did only to rush 3 or go prevent defense in games that were 1 score or 2 scores. His schemes cost us 3 games last year and almost the Bears game. Quinn is far more aggressive and its showing already.

    Gus Bradley will have the Jag’s D ready to play this Sunday… The offense is something else. The Hawks should win, but don’t count any NFL team out.

    Little webbed hands will be clapped to damp, mouldy, rotting heads, in horror next Sunday up there in the Great Pacific No Where. Weather permitting of course.

    Hawks could win without lynch and Wilson. Here in Vegas the spread is opening at
    Hawks -19.5

    MJD reportedly said, “If [Blaine] doesn’t have to play, why do I, this is not fair!”

  15. pathsovglory says: Sep 16, 2013 5:08 PM

    will probably not be as dominant as people or Vegas thinks… but Seattle will still win it.

  16. bostoncollie says: Sep 16, 2013 5:10 PM

    Henne racked up the stats during garbage time…he’s not much better than Gabbert. Teddy B is destined for the London Jaguars.

  17. hawkforlife says: Sep 16, 2013 5:21 PM

    I almost feel sorry for the Jaguars. Almost.

  18. swampfox42 says: Sep 16, 2013 5:22 PM

    MJD sucks. Real bad choice for fantasy

  19. kenny2neworleans says: Sep 16, 2013 5:30 PM

    Just sign tebow already. Your not going to win any games, so at least sell some tickets and give the poor fans some reason to cheer!

  20. trollhammer20 says: Sep 16, 2013 5:36 PM

    If Seattle has a trap game this year, this is it. Huge emotional win yesterday, another huge matchup (surely to be hyped with the tag “Super Bowl Preview?” in the media) in two weeks in Houston, and up against a team with a head coach who knows the Seattle locker room better than anyone.

    That said, if you’re not getting at least 20 points, keep your money in your pocket.

  21. txraiderfan says: Sep 16, 2013 5:56 PM

    Jags fans are lucky. Henne is capable of winning an NFL game (however rarely). Gabbert is not

  22. txraiderfan says: Sep 16, 2013 5:57 PM

    Henne did rack up garbage stats, but Gabbert wouldn’t have even done that much

  23. woodrree7 says: Sep 16, 2013 6:23 PM

    The Jags will be lucky to win a game this season. They are the suckiest bunch of sucks that ever sucked!!

  24. cwk22 says: Sep 16, 2013 8:31 PM

    Henne will keep the loss to 20 points, Gabbert would have doubled that.
