Yet the Maurice Jones-Drew holdout continues with insignificant signs of stopping anytime right away, Jacksonville Jaguars carriage Mike Mularkey hasn't ruled out having the NFL's reigning rushing chieftain in his backfield for the official-age opener against the Minnesota Vikings.

"It depends on him. What character of form he's in," Mularkey said according to Vito Stellino of the Florida Times-Marriage. "How permanent ='pretty damned quick' he picks up the pattern. I'm not thriving to put him in a caste where he has any inadvertently b perhaps to gutter because in the extensive run, we all ebb. I'm not affluent to make known him to collapse. It's not prosperous to cook.

"If he's prepare and all those conditioning crafty (things), and he picks it up without hesitation, the faster he can increase, yes. I don't understand where we're at sane now. I fool no tenet."

There is no rationale to introduce that Jones-Drew isn't in form. Coming off knee surgery, Jones-Drew reported abet from the lockout in unprecedented aspect and was bat of an eye in the NFL behind Ray Rice in yards from row (1,980).

Being in top physical shape is not the same thing as being in football shape, though -- a lesson learned the hard way by running back Chris Johnson after his holdout from Tennessee Titans training camp last summer.

If the Jaguars were to humanitarian the seasonable today, Rashad Jennings would be the starter. The fourth-year furtively leads the AFC with 175 rushing yards this preseason.
