JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew is making progress toward getting back on the field and getting his college degree.

Jones-Drew started running for the first time in nearly two months Wednesday, but remains a long shot to play Sunday when the Jaguars (2-12) host New England (10-4).

Jones-Drew has missed the last eight games because of a sprained left foot. Coach Mike Mularkey says his star running back is "questionable," an upgrade from his "highly questionable" status of recent weeks.

With two games remaining, Jones-Drew hopes to return this season. Regardless, he has plans to return to UCLA next month and continue work on a business degree. He left school after his junior season in 2006 and promised his mother and grandparents he would return and finish college.
