The Jaguars won the holdout with running back Maurice Jones-Drew, and they’ve also made him change his celebrations.

Head coach Mike Mularkey has offered to donate $250 to the Ronald McDonald house if players simply hand the ball to an official after a score, and the team has offered to match.

So when Jones-Drew scored his first TD of the season on a 59-yard burst, he didn’t break it down, he took the humble route, and helped a good cause at the same time.

Jones-Drew said he wasn’t sure how he’d react, but Mularkey has obviously gotten to him.

The team’s benefiting from having him back on board as well, as he has 129 yards on 13 carries as the Jags cut the Colts lead to 14-10 in the third.
