The Washington Redskins will take on the 8-6 Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday hoping to play spoiler to a team that is looking to make the AFC Playoffs. Their task got a lot easier after this news broke from Jacksonville. Running back Maurice Jones-Drew has yet to practice this week due to a knee injury, and the team has ruled him out of Sunday's game, according to a report by FOX's Jay Glazer:
Sources say Maurice Jones-Drew is OUT this weekend, barring a miraculous turnaround. Jags plan is to rest him as knee is still swollen.
Jones-Drew has suffered a number of nagging injuries, but the knee pain became too much to overcome this week. He did play against the Indianapolis Colts last week after missing several practices, but no Jaguars player who misses the Friday practice ever plays on Sunday.
Rashad Jennings would likely start for the Jaguars in Jones-Drew's place. The Jaguars will likely take to the air more to try to get a win with Jones-Drew out of the lineup.
