SAN JOSE, Calif. Terry Rozier Jersey . -- Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drews left foot is still hurting. His humour appears to be just fine. Jones-Drew was held out of practice as a precaution on Wednesday after his foot swelled up in the morning, three days after he suffered a strained tendon while being tackled by Oakland Raiders safety Charles Woodson in the first half of Jacksonvilles 19-9 loss. The veteran running back talked excitedly about visiting family and friends as the Jaguars stay in Northern California in preparation for Sundays game in Seattle. He grew up in Oakland and his mother still lives in the area. But Jones-Drew also had some choice words for Tracy McGrady after the former NBA star went on Twitter and said the winless Jaguars should offer him a tryout at quarterback or wide receiver. "Jacksonville (at)jaguars need to bring me on in for a tryout at QB or receiver!" McGrady tweeted on Monday. Speaking with reporters at San Jose States Spartan Stadium where the Jaguars are practicing, Jones-Drew said McGrady should follow through and try out for the team. "Youre more than welcome to come and sign a waiver and come to a live practice and see how it works out for you if its that easy," Jones-Drew said. Asked how many practices McGrady could make it through, Jones-Drew smiled. "You never know," Jones-Drew said. "He might be tougher than what most people think." Jones-Drews own health is in question this week. He had taken a pitch and cut up the field when Woodson made a flying tackle after diving over Jacksonville left tackle Eugene Monroe midway through the second quarter last Sunday. Woodson appeared to grab Jones-Drew around his neck to make the tackle but no penalty was called. "Not a dirty play," said Jones-Drew, who limped off the field after the play and didnt return. "It was a great play. For a guy at his age to kind of sell out to do that .... I thought it was a horse-collar but he made a phenomenal play." Jones-Drew said his foot got stuck in the turf. The Jaguars had been hopeful of getting Jones-Drew on the field but pushed back plans to have him practice Wednesday after he woke up and noticed swelling in his injured foot. Neither he nor coach Gus Bradley believe its a significant setback, however. "The swellings come back down," Jones-Drew said. "Its still a little there but I should be back ready to go by (Thursday)." Bradley agreed. "They felt like it was doing pretty good and then he had some swelling that occurred," Bradley said. "I know he feels better about it today than he did yesterday, so well just see how it goes." Injured quarterback Blaine Gabbert is also making slow progress. Gabbert did some light throwing before practice but remains a longshot to play in Seattle. Chad Henne, who started in place of Gabbert against Oakland last week, expects the crowd noise to be a factor in Seattle. To help, Bradley had music piped into Wednesdays practice. "At times (the music) can be just as loud but you can never know what youre getting into unless its third down or its a key play in the game," Henne said. "We just have to adjust to it and do the best we can." Notes: Tight end Marcedes Lewis (calf), cornerback Alan Ball (groin) and wide receiver Mike Brown (back) were held out of practice. ... Offensive linemen Uche Nwaneri (knee) and Will Rackley (knee), wide receivers Ace Sanders (ribs) and Stephen Burton (hip), linebacker J.T. Thomas (hamstring), defensive tackle Roy Miller (knee) were limited. ... Defensive end Jason Babin and centre Brad Meester were given the day off. Reggie Lewis Jersey . With Washington teammate Nene drawing double-teams coming off his big game against the Lakers, Gortat scored 25 points on 11-of-12 shooting and grabbed eight rebounds to lead the Wizards to a 100-92 win in overtime over Milwaukee on Wednesday night. Jayson Tatum Jersey .com) - James Harden put the Houston Rockets on his back and willed them to an overtime victory on Thursday. http://www.authenticcelticsproshop.com/Bill-Russell-Jersey/ . Today, well look at five frontcourt players today, here from the Bay Area. 1. AMIR JOHNSON (Raptors): I cant figure out what the issue or problem is, but based upon what Im seeing, hes not right.LONDON -- A resilient West Ham side held Chelsea to a 0-0 draw at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday as Jose Mourinhos team lost ground to new leader Manchester City in the Premier League title race. Under a pouring rain, West Ham defended for most of the second half and managed to contain Chelseas assaults to secure an important point in its fight to remain in the top flight next season. Demba Ba hit the post from close range in added time as Chelsea piled on the pressure but staunch defending from the Hammers prevailed. Chelsea missed the chance to draw level with second-place Arsenal and now trails Manchester City by three points after Manuel Pellegrinis team won 5-1 at Tottenham. West Ham remained in the relegation zone, two points behind 17th-place Sunderland. Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho accused West Ham of playing "football from the 19th century" and said he was frustrated by the result. "Its very difficult to play a football match where only one team wants to play. Its very difficult," Mourinho said. "A football match is about two teams playing and this match was only one team playing and another team not playing." But West Ham manager Sam Allardyce was delighted that his tactics worked out perfectly. "He cant take it, can he? He cant take it because weve outwitted him. He just cant cope," Allardyce said about Mourinho. "I love to see Chelsea players moaning at the referee, trying to intimidate him, Jose jumping up and down saying we play crap football. Its brilliant when you get a result against him. Hard luck, Jose." John Terry returned for Chelsea as Jose Mourinho made six changes following Sundays win over Stoke in the FA Cup. West Ham looked comfortable early on and could have been awarded a penalty inn the sixth minute when striker Andy Carroll went down after a challenge from Cesar Azpilicueta, but referee Neil Swarbrick played on. Shaquille ONeal Jersey. West Ham keeper Adrian then made a superb save to deny Oscars curled shot that was heading for the top corner, but that was the only real dangerous occasion for the Blues in the first half hour. West Ham forwards Andy Carroll and Mohamed Diame caused many problems in the Chelsea half while Sam Allardyces team restricted the hosts to long-range shots. But after missing a shot in the 26th minute, Diame crashed into the advertising hoardings as he apparently injured his ankle and was replaced by Matt Jarvis. West Ham defence again held firm in the 40th minute when Eden Hazard tried to find his way through, with the Belgium star forced to hit the ball straight at Adrian. Chelsea went close in first-half added time but another excellent save from Adrian denied Samuel Etoo shot from Oscars missed attempt. Chelsea dominated after the interval but struggled to break through West Hams defensive lines as Mourinho started to show signs of nervousness on the touchline. Ramires had a good chance to break the deadlock but he sent his half-volley wide in the 61st minute. Mourinho then made a double substitution, bringing in Nemanja Matic and Frank Lampard for Azpilicueta and John Obi Mikel. Oscar tried his luck in the 72nd only to see Matt Taylor blocking the ball before Lampard looked set to open the scoring, but again Taylor threw himself in the way. Hazard missed two consecutive chances after Ba hit the post and Etoo had a goal disallowed. The former Barcelona forward kicked the ball into the empty net after Adrian had placed it down for a free kick, apparently unaware that the referee had whistled for a foul.
