Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew does not have Lisfranc sprain

A team source has told ESPN's Adam Schefter that Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew @Jones_Drew32 does not need surgery for his sprained foot, meaning he doesn't have the dreaded Lisfranc sprain. However, the team still expects Jones-Drew to miss "multiple games." He suffered the injury on his second carry during Sunday's game against the Raiders. Rashad Jennings @RashadJennings will be the Jaguars' starting running back for as long as Jones-Drew is out.

Fantasy Analysis:

So, that's a bit of good news. A Lisfranc sprain would have almost certainly meant the rest of the season for MJD. Right now, a two-to-three-week absence seems like a best-case scenario. Jennings will most likely get to start against the Packers, Lions and Colts over the next few weeks. Because of his solid workload and ability as a runner and as a receiver, Jennings is a top-25 RB in fantasy.
