Jones-Drew sidelined for Jaguars' season finale

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew will not play in the team's finale at Houston because of a knee injury. Coach Jack Del Rio ruled Jones-Drew out Friday, along with linebacker Justin Durant (groin) and tight end Zach Miller (concussion).

The Jaguars (8-7) also will be without quarterback David Garrard, who was placed on injured reserve Thursday following finger surgery.

Jones-Drew has played with an injured right knee all season, but it really started bothering him after his sixth consecutive 100-yard game, Dec. 12. He has missed six straight practices, did not play last week against Washington and likely will have surgery after the season.
