Second-year running back Rashad Jennings is likely to get extended playing time, possibly even his first pro start, in Sunday's regular-season home finale against the Washington Redskins. Maurice Jones-Drew's status for Sunday's game was officially listed as "doubtful" by the Jaguars on Friday.

Jones-Drew has missed practice all week with a knee injury that also caused him to miss practice time last week. Jones-Drew managed only 46 yards on 15 rushing attempts last Sunday in Indianapolis, which ended a six-game 100-yard rushing streak.

Meanwhile, linebacker Justin Durant was listed as "out" due to a groin injury and wide receiver Mike Sims-Walker was "questionable," due to an ankle injury.

Jennings relieved Jones-Drew late in the loss to the Colts. He carried the ball three times for 13 yards and caught seven passes for 64 yards. He's rushed for 319 yards and three touchdowns this season.
