Jacksonville Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew will not be suspended, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport. The NFL has traditionally not suspended a player who hasn't been charged with a crime, and he has no history of bad behavior. He should be on the field for Week 1. To the question of whether the running back would pursue legal action because statements about the player made by the opposing counsel turned out to be false, Jones-Drew's lawyer, Hank Coxe, said "almost definitely not."
As folks probably figured. MJD's foot is of greater concern than his "legal troubles." So far, so good, for the foot, so he may still be a decent RB2, at least.
