Jaguars’ Jones-Drew feeling better, hopes to play
Jones-Drew was held out of practice as a precaution on Wednesday after his foot swelled up in the morning, three days after he suffered a strained tendon while being tackled by Oakland Raiders safety Charles Woodson in the first half of Jacksonville’s 19-9 loss.
The veteran running back talked excitedly about visiting family and friends as the Jaguars stay in Northern California in preparation for Sunday’s game in Seattle. He grew up in Oakland and his mother still lives in the area.
“Jacksonville (at)jaguars need to bring me on in for a tryout at QB or receiver!” McGrady tweeted on Monday.
“You’re more than welcome to come and sign a waiver and come to a live practice and see how it works out for you if it’s that easy,” Jones-Drew said.
“You never know,” Jones-Drew said. “He might be tougher than what most people think.”
Jones-Drew’s own health is in question this week.
He had taken a pitch and cut up the field when Woodson made a flying tackle after diving over Jacksonville left tackle Eugene Monroe midway through the second quarter last Sunday. Woodson appeared to grab Jones-Drew around his neck to make the tackle but no penalty was called.
“Not a dirty play,” said Jones-Drew, who limped off the field after the play and didn’t return. “It was a great play. For a guy at his age to kind of sell out to do that …. I thought it was a horse-collar but he made a phenomenal play.”
Jones-Drew said his foot got stuck in the turf.
Neither he nor coach Gus Bradley believe it’s a significant setback, however.
