JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew was limited in practice Friday -- the third consecutive day he's missed part of team drills -- and was listed as questionable against Tampa Bay. Jones-Drew hasn't missed a game in his short career and vowed earlier in the week to play today against the Buccaneers. He sprained his left knee with about a minute to play Monday night against Indianapolis. If he doesn't play, the Jaguars will turn to starter Fred Taylor to carry the load.

Maurice Jones-Drew is a kid at heart and doesn't take himself too seriously. Case in point: On the day before Halloween, the running back drove his Hummer home from Jacksonville Jaguars headquarters wearing the giant, fuzzy red head of a popular "Sesame Street" character. So when a cluster of New York Jets fans taunted him before Sunday's game at the Meadowlands with a singsong chant of " Over-rated! Over-rated! " this 5-foot-7 Elmo impostor was -- what else? -- tickled. "It got pretty bad; they almost rattled me," the former UCLA standout said.

Maurice Jones-Drew wears No. 32 as a reminder of the number of teams that passed on him in the draft last spring. That's all of them, and most of them are probably wishing they hadn't right about now. Jones-Drew, picked 60th by the Jacksonville Jaguars out of UCLA, made his first start Sunday against the Patriots and rushed for 131 yards and two touchdowns in a 24-21 loss.

Jacksonville Jaguars fans and, more importantly to most, fantasy football players can breathe a sigh of relief: All-Pro running back Maurice Jones-Drew has reported to camp. The NFL's leading rusher last season with 1,606 yards had been a holdout all summer as he sought a new contract, despite the fact he had two years left on the five-year, $31-million contract he signed in 2009. By reporting to camp, Jones-Drew will be eligible to receive his regular-season paychecks, valued at more than $9 million the next two seasons.

The last time Los Angeles saw them together, USC's Reggie Bush was a superstar, and UCLA's Maurice Jones-Drew (whose surname was then simply Drew) was an afterthought. Bush was the Lakers, Jones-Drew the Clippers. Bush was Hollywood, Jones-Drew was Westwood. On Dec. 3, 2005, when USC delivered a 66-19 crosstown thrashing at the Coliseum, Bush finished with 260 yards and, essentially, the Heisman Trophy. Jones-Drew had a respectable by unremarkable 84 yards and a touchdown.

Rumors that Maurice Jones-Drew will report to camp this weekend have given Jacksonville Jaguars fans, as well as Fantasy Football owners, something to look forward to this holiday. The multiple-threat running back, who led the NFL in rushing last season with 1,606 yards, has been holding out for a new contract. Jaguars owner Shad Khan took a hard line and refused to renegotiate a five-year, $31-million deal that Jones-Drew signed in 2009.

Maurice Jones-Drew and Mike Wallace are both essential parts of their teams' offenses. They both just recently ended extended holdouts that saw them miss training camp and all the preseason games. Should they be allowed to just waltz back in like nothing ever happened and resume their spots as starters for Week 1 of the NFL season? Jones-Drew, the former UCLA star and reigning league rushing champion, remained absent for 38 days, even though he had two years left and $9 million owed on his current deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars, before finally showing up on Sunday.

Maurice Jones-Drew is back in camp, ready to work toward regaining his starting position at running back with the Jacksonville Jaguars. While Jaguars fans might hold a grudge with last season's leading rusher in the NFL for his 38-day holdout for a better contract, they should like his attitude now that he's back. “This is the last talk about the whole contract situation,” Jones-Drew said during his Sunday afternoon news conference. “We're going to move forward to football after this.” Music to many people's ears, especially those who drafted Jones-Drew for fantasy football.

And, of course, Maurice Jones-Drew, the disgruntled Jacksonville Jaguars running back, is available. Irsay took to Twitter on Thursday to say the Colts were seriously looking to make a deal, following up that tweet with another about new General Manager Ryan Grigson being willing to gamble and that the owner himself would open his checkbook to get a trade done. Then came a third tweet: TRADE WINDS BLOWING.
