Jaguars RB Jones-Drew out against Colts

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- The Jacksonville Jaguars will be without running back Maurice Jones-Drew for Thursday night's game against Indianapolis.

Coach Mike Mularkey ruled Jones-Drew out Monday, no surprise since he's still wearing a walking boot on his sprained left foot and using a push cart to get around the facility.

Jones-Drew has missed the last two games, both after injuring his foot on the first play against Oakland on Oct. 21. Rashad Jennings will continue to start in Jones-Drew's place.

Mularkey says Jones-Drew's injury doesn't appear to be season ending. He says "every game that he stands on that sideline, he gets healed a little more just because he wants to play."

But the coach says Jones-Drew also is questionable to play Nov. 18 at Houston.
