Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew will test injured ankle Saturday and pre-game Sunday

Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew @Jones_Drew32 was able to practice in limited fashion on his sprained left ankle Friday, and he said will continue to test it out during a Saturday walkthrough and during pre-game warmups Sunday. His playing status will be determined based on how he performs in those workouts. Jones-Drew is currently listed as questionable to play against the Seahawks.

Fantasy Analysis:

I don't know what this is worth, because I wouldn't play MJD even if he was active. The Seahawks are simply amazing at home and just shut down Frank Gore to 16 yards last week. What is an injured Jones-Drew going to do with absolutely no one else around him to take away the defense's attention? It's very rare that you bench MJD on days that he plays, but I think this Sunday should be one of those days if you own him. And if he can't go, Jordan Todman @JordanTodman and Justin Forsett @JForsett are Jacksonville's top backup RBs. Can you feel the excitement?
