Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew is one of three players nominated for the FedEx Ground NFL Player of the Week, joining Michael Bush (Oakland Raiders) and Chris Johnson (Tennessee Titans).  

Fans can vote for one player in each category on NFL.com/FedEx from 9 a.m. EST on Tuesday through 3 p.m. EST on Friday to determine the FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week. The winners will be announced Friday on NFL Total Access on NFL Network and on NFL.com.   

Jones-Drew rushed for 114 yards on 25 carries last Sunday at Indianapolis and scored on a three-yard run in the fourth quarter.  He added three receptions for 23 yards and finished with 137 of the club’s 251 total yards.  He has a team-high four touchdowns through nine games including one in back-to-back games.  On Sunday he joined Fred Taylor as the only players in Jaguars history to reach 6,000 career rushing yards.  

FedEx will support education efforts at Junior Achievement by making weekly $2,000 donations in the winning players’ names. The funding, allocated to local Junior Achievement area offices in that team’s city or state, is used to educate the next generation of entrepreneurs on how to start and grow their own small businesses.
