FREMONT, Calif. (AP) — Jacksonville running back Maurice Jones-Drew has a tendon strain in his left foot, and the Jaguars hope he won’t miss any games.
Coach Gus Bradley said Monday that Jones-Drew will undergo an MRI as a precaution. But he’s encouraged that Jones-Drew could be ready to play Sunday in Seattle.
He was hurt in the first half of Sunday’s 19-9 loss at Oakland and could miss practice this week.
The news isn’t as promising for quarterback Blaine Gabbert, who sliced open the back of his throwing hand during the season opener against Kansas City. Gabbert had some of the stitches removed but is almost certain to miss a second straight game.
The Jaguars are staying in Northern California and practicing at San Jose State with two straight games on the West Coast.
