Jaguars Depth Chart: Maurice Jones-Drew Won't Start Immediately When He Shows Up

When Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew shows up to Jaguars training camp, the Pro Bowler will not immediately jump to the top of the depth chart, head coach Mike Mularkey told reporters following Tuesday's practice. Via Vito Stellino of the Florida Times-Union:

"I think it would be a disservice to put him in if he was not prepared. It would be a health risk to do that. If he’s not prepared it’s not going to help us offensively and it’s not going to help our team if he’s not ready to go at full strength. I will never put our team in jeopardy of being in that position."

Fourth-year back Rashad Jennings would reportedly continue to be listed as the starter.
