Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew will miss his third straight game Thursday night because of a foot injury.

The Jaguars (1-7) host the surprising 5-3 Indianapolis Colts.

Coach Mike Mularkey made the announcement during his weekly press conference on Monday. Mularkey believes Jones-Drew could return for the Jaguars' following game on Nov. 18 at the Houston Texans.

Jones-Drew sustained the injury in Week 7 against the Oakland Raiders. He has 86 carries for 414 yards with a rushing touchdown this season.

Rashad Jennings has not fared particularly well in his place. For the season, he has 63 rushes for 194 yards with one TD this season.
