Maurice Jones-Drew plans to play Week 15

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

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.”

Fantasy Impact: 

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.
