Maurice Jones-Drew has a sprained foot…

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew has a sprained foot that the team believes will sideline him for multiple games, a team source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Jones-Drew will not need surgery, which means he does not have a Lisfranc injury, the source said.

On Monday, the team ruled Jones-Drew out for its Week 8 game against the Green Bay Packers.

Jones-Drew suffered the injury to his left foot on Jacksonville’s first play from scrimmage in Sunday’s 26-23 overtime loss to the Oakland Raiders. The seven-year veteran was standing on crutches on the sideline in the second half and left the stadium in a walking boot.

The Jags also are dealing with an injury to starting quarterback Blaine Gabbert, who left Sunday’s game with an injury to his non-throwing shoulder.

A source told ESPN NFL Insider Ed Werder that an MRI exam on the second-year quarterback showed he has a torn left labrum.

Jones-Drew, who leads the Jaguars with 414 rushing yards, was replaced by Rashad Jennings, who ran for 44 yards against Oakland and will start against Green Bay.
