Earlier on Tuesday, it was reported the Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew wil not be attending the team's mandatory three-day mini-camp, which begins today. Jones-Drew will face up to $60,000 in fines if he misses all three days.
However, the holdout could extend way past the upcoming mini-camp. According to Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union:
Wrote yesterday MJD wasn't coming to minicamp, barring a change of mind. Have heard it's possible he takes this into the season. #Jaguars— Tania Ganguli (@taniaganguli) June 12, 2012
The Jaguars open their season on September 9 in Minnesota against the Vikings. Their home opener is the following week against the Houston Texans. Then they travel to Indianapolis to take on the Colts and host the Cincinnati Bengals for weeks three and four, respectively.
