Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Cecil Shorts and running back Rashad Jennings, who are each recovering from concussions, haven’t been cleared to participate in practice yet, while running back Maurice Jones-Drew remains out due to his foot injury.
The Jaguars are extremely thin at running back at this point, as their top three options are all dealing with injuries. Jones-Drew has been out since early in the season due to a foot injury. It’s unknown when he’ll return if he does at all this season.
Jones-Drew was initially replaced by Jennings, who was then benched in favor of Jalen Parmele due to ineffective play. Parmele then suffered a season-ending groin injury and the team was forced to turn back to Jennings, who sustained a concussion last week.
If Jennings is unable to suit up this weekend for the Jaguars, they would turn to former fullback Montell Owens to start Sunday against the New York Jets.
