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 Jaguars.com.
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.
