Recommendation: MJD's absence was largely expected, and now the waiting game begins. Both owner Shad Khan and GM Gene Smith have stated no new deal is coming for Jones-Drew, who has yet to publicly address his contract concerns. While it's still too early to panic about MJD's Week 1 availability, the longer the holdout goes, the more hesitant you may want to be on pulling the trigger early on Jones-Drew, especially given his astronomical carries last season.
