Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew is nowhere close to coming back to the team and his holdout could last until the season starts, reports ESPN.com.

According to the source, the Jaguars and Jones-Drew have been in constant contact during his holdout, speaking almost daily. The communication between the sides was termed as cordial, the source said.

Jones-Drew signed a five-year, $31 million deal and that deal has two years and about $9 million left on it.

Jones-Drew, who led the NFL in rushing last season, did not report to the start of Jaguars camp late last month, and the Jaguars then placed him on the reserve/did not report list. He is the only back in the NFL to rush for over 1,300 yards each of the past three seasons.
