Jaguars injuries: Maurice Jones-Drew, Rashad Jennings miss practice

Cary Emondson-US PRESSWIRE

They were two of 11 players to either sit out of practice or be limited.

Although the playoffs are out of the question for the Jacksonville Jaguars, they'll still have a chance to play spoiler when they welcome the New England Patriots into EverBank Field on Sunday. A loss for the Patriots would completely dash their hopes of a first-round bye in the AFC playoffs as they sit in third place, a game behind the Denver Broncos. But the Jaguars are starting off their week of practice in bad shape.

Running backs Maurice Jones-Drew (foot) and Rashad Jennings (concussion) both missed practice on Wednesday with their respective injuries. Fullback Greg Jones sat out with a thigh injury, while center Brad Meester took the day off with a foot injury. Linebacker Paul Posluszny and defensive back Dwight Lowery also missed practice with a groin and foot injury respectively.

Five other Jaguars were limited in Wednesday's practice, all on the defensive side of the ball. Defensive tackle Tyson Alualu took it easy with a calf injury, as did cornerback Aaron Ross. Cornerback Derek Cox was limited with a hamstring injury, while Rashean Mathis wasn't at full speed because of a groin injury. Defensive end George Selvie hasn't fully recovered from a concussion and was limited on Wednesday.
