    It’ll be a surprise if Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew hasn’t returned by the opener because he will miss regular season paychecks if he takes his holdout into the regular season. But Mularkey indicated that Jones-Drew won’t be automatically put right back into the lineup, assuming he decides to return. “We have to obviously spend extra time with him in the classroom and see where he is with his conditioning,’’ he said. “Even if he is in good condition, he won’t be in football condition. As guys have found out, it’s hard to practice their condition 2 1/2 hours like we do out here. There’s no exercises and nothing you can do to simulate an NFL practice and an NFL game. We’ll just see where he is when he’s back both mentally and physically.†Mularkey added, “I think it would be a disservice to put him in if he was not fully prepared. It would be a health risk to do that. If he’s not prepared, it is not going to help us offensively and it’s not going to help our team if he’s not ready to go at full strength. I would never put our team in jeopardy of being in that position.’’

    Same crap should be done to Mike Wallace once he decides to get his ads to camp.
