NFL News: Jaguars Place Maurice Jones-Drew On IR

USATSI_8004688_154224518_lowresThe 2012 NFL season has officially come to an end for perennial Pro Bowler Maurice Jones-Drew with the Jacksonville Jaguars placing him on the injured reserve list on Friday according to Kareem Copeland of NFL.com:

The Jacksonville Jaguars placed Maurice Jones-Drew on injured reserve Friday. A move that could have been done months ago.

Jones-Drew suffered a left foot injury in October, but the Jaguars said it wasn’t season-ending. Months dragged by, and the Jaguars piled up losses without their best player.

The Jaguars later announced that Jones-Drew will have surgery Friday in Charlotte, N.C., and probably be sidelined until May.

The move to place Jones-Drew on the injured reserve list has been long overdue. Jones-Drew has been flirting with the idea of coming back in the last few weeks of the season, but it was obviously never a realistic possibility and not really worth it considering that the Jaguars have only won two games all season long.

The season-ending injury couldn’t have come at a worse time for Jones-Drew as he was trying to renegotiate his contract before the season began. Jones-Drew has one year left on his deal with the Jaguars at $4.95 million and will probably have to play the year out in 2013 to prove that his injury wasn’t a game-changer in terms of production on the field in order to merit a new deal.

The one thing that Jones-Drew does have going for him as a result of missing the majority of the season is the fact that the Jaguars were helpless without him coming out of the backfield. Even though Jacksonville hasn’t been a good team for quite some time now, they’re obviously better off with the perennial Pro Bowler rather than without him.

Only time will tell if the Jaguars are convinced that re-signing the 27-year-old is the right move. The foot injury that kept him out most of the year may have jeopardized his long-term status with the team moving forward.
