Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey shed a little more light on what exactly Maurice Jones-Drew is going to do this Sunday versus the Vikings.
"He'll probably rotate in their on third down," Mularkey said of Jones-Drew. "He'll get a series. He'll be just like we always have had a third-down back, kind of get some reps to give Rashad (Jennings) a blow."
Jones-Drew made his long-awaited return to practice Monday. Mularkey said there is no set number of carries that the team will try to give him, and that while he said Jones-Drew looks like he's game-ready physically, he said he would have a better feel for that after Wednesday's practice.
Thus, Jennings looks like a very good start against the Vikings. He'll probably get at least 20 touches.
If you drafted Jones-Drew in the third or fourth round of your draft, congratulations; you ended up with what will be a bargain. Just not this week. Jones-Drew won't be of much fantasy use for a week or two.
