Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew has been out since suffering a sprained foot back in Week 7 against the Oakland Raiders. While he is still questionable for this Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins, head coach Mike Mularkey hopes that he will return to the team before the end of the season.

So far this year, Jones-Drew has run for 414 yards this season and one touchdown rush. He's also caught 14 passes for 86 yards and another touchdown. His most productive game this season was back in Week 3 against the Indianapolis Colts where he ran for 177 yards on 28 carries and scored a touchdown while catching two passes for 16 yards.

The game between the Jaguars and the Dolphins will be at Sun Life Stadium in Miami with kickoff scheduled for 1 p.m. The game will be televised on CBS with Jaguars radio coverage on WOKV 690 AM and 106.5 FM.
