Maurice Jones-Drew Injury: Jaguars Running Back Limps Off Field

The NFL's leading rusher appeared to injure an ankle at the end of the first half in the Jacksonville Jaguars Thursday night matchup against the Atlanta Falcons. As has been the case for much of the 2011 Jaguars season, Jones-Drew has been the lone bright spot on the offensive side of the ball for Jacksonville. But on their final possession of the first half, MJD was forced to the sideline, hobbling on what appeared to be a bum ankle after he was tackled on a short dump pass in the middle of the field.

Jones-Drew left the field early, heading to the locker room before the end of the half. He was walking under his own power, but did appear to be limping as he made his way in early for treatment. He had 8 carries for 74 yards in just the first half.
