Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew, appearing on SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio, said that he’ll play next weekend notwithstanding a hamstring injury suffered on Thursday night against the Texans.
“Definitely,” Jones-Drew said. “Definitely. That’s always been the plan. Right now, I mean, I just want to make sure everything is on track. And then we’ll see how it goes next week but I expect to be out there playing with my teammates.”
In other words, Friday’s MRI went well.
“It’s what we, I think, what we figured out was just a strained hamstring,” Jones-Drew said. “I’ve played with those before so it’s not that big of a deal. You just have to get the necessary treatments and things done so you can get back and get on the field for Sunday.”
It's still early, but it's good to hear that the results of the MRI weren't negative and that MJD has a chance to play in Week 15.
