MJD injury: Jaguars RB hopeful to play, but looks doubtful

Sam Greenwood

Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew left last Thursday's game with a hamstring injury and his status for Sunday against the Bills seems up in the air.

The Jacksonville Jaguars had a scare in Thursday night's victory over the Houston Texans with running back Maurice Jones-Drew going down with an injury. It looked bad at first, but after some examination and an MRI it appears it's a hamstring strain.

Even though Jones-Drew is confident he will play on Sunday, the outlook still doesn't look too good.

The original plan was for Jones-Drew to test his hamstring in Friday's practice, which appears to still be the plan.

If Jones-Drew isn't available for Sunday's matchup, it will certainly put a hamper on the Jaguars ability to win the game. The Bills struggle to stop the run and Jones-Drew has just started to catch his stride after a very slow start. By all accounts, Jordan Todman should be available despite getting nicked up in the Texans game as well as Denard Robinson being available for likely the most snaps he's seen all season.
