Maurice Jones-Drew Has A Foot Injury

Jacksonville Jaguars star running back Maurice Jones-Drew injured his foot in Sunday's overtime loss to the Oakland Raiders.
The 27 year old Jones-Drew injured his foot on the opening drive and did not return for the rest of the game. The three-time Pro Bowler went to the locker room, had his foot taped, and was seen using crutches on the Jaguars' sideline.
Jones-Drew, an Oakland native, was leading the team with 408 rushing yards and stayed on the field for one more run but couldn't come back after that.
"It felt like a little boo-boo but the second time I obviously felt it so I came out. I wanted to be out there with those guys today," he said.
Coach Mike Mularkey hasn't ruled out the possibility of a Lisfranc injury (not another one!), which as our readers already know, has the potential to sideline Jones-Drew for the rest of the season. UPDATE: Jones-Drew does not have a Lisfranc injury and was diagnosed with a sprain that will keep him out for several games. He will not require surgery on this sprain.
Jones-Drew, the 2011 NFl rushing leader, is know to have a high pain tolerance, and his absence sends up a red flag as to how serious his injury actually is. He underwent an MRI on Monday and further news on his injury should be available some time today.
