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

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.
