Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew will test hamstring strain on Friday

Hays Carlyon's Blog

Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew is holding out hope that he'll be able to play Sunday when Buffalo comes to EverBank Field.

Jones-Drew injured his hamstring during Thursday's 27-20 win over Houston. He ran for 103 yards on 14 carries prior to being forced from the game. The extra time benefited Jones-Drew, who spent the weekend getting treatment.

"You've got to be patient," Jones-Drew said. "You don't want to reinjure it. I've been doing treatment all weekend. We'll see how it goes later in the week when we test it out on Friday. Try to get the scar down."

If Jones-Drew is inactive Sunday, Jordan Todman would likely get the start. The Bills are ranked 26th in the NFL in run defense.

Jones-Drew has carried 208 times for 719 yards and five touchdowns this season. He's also caught 34 passes for 239 yards.

Jaguars coach Gus Bradley will update Jones-Drew's condition later this afternoon.

Um, Mojo, Why don't you take

Um, Mojo, Why don't you take the week, or for that matter the next 7 months off until we have something to play for? Seriously if MJD is going to be around for next year why waste on playing out the string? Let's test out the young guys and save the proven ones for games that matter.

I guy like Jones-Drew has

I guy like Jones-Drew has pride.
I'm sure he would like to have
another 1,000 yard season and
he needs less than 300 yards to
accomplish that goal.

He has 700 yards thru 13

Unpublished

He has 700 yards thru 13 games and needs almost 300 in the next three games to make 1000. Not happening.

His contract is up - say goodbye to MJD.
