Maurice Jones-Drew Not Satisfied With Being The Starter

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew is back in a starting role, but he isn't satisfied. In discussing the issue after a practice this week, Jones-Drew explained why he isn't feeling particularly happy about the promotion:

"Because we didn't win so at the end of the day that's all you want so that's the thing we want to work on. We want that before us. Jaguars we want people to say winners and so that's what we want to work on and we're going to continue to do that."

Jones-Drew didn't start in Week 1 because of his lengthy preseason holdout. Rashad Jennings got the nod instead, but he suffered an injury against the Vikings.
