Jags RB Maurice Jones-Drew, the three-time Pro Bowl running back whose production has increased in recent weeks, will be questionable this week as the Jaguars begin preparing to play the Buffalo Bills, Head Coach Gus Bradley said Monday.
Jones-Drew sustained a hamstring injury in the Jaguars’ victory over Houston last Thursday.
Bradley said Jones-Drew felt better Monday after time off over the weekend, according to the story, but said he likely won’t practice until at least Friday. Jones-Drew told reporters earlier in the day he underwent treatment throughout the weekend and also said that he likely wouldn’t practice until Friday. If that's the case, he could still play in Week 15. Needless to say, his status is up in the air in what would be a pretty decent matchup against the Bills, who are ranked 21st in allowing fantasy points to RBs.

Maurice Jones-Drew plans to play Week 15

“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.

Daniels said last week it was unlikely he’d play against the Jaguars.
Kubiak hinted Monday that Daniels could continue to be unavailable.
“Owen is not yet on the field is the best way I can describe it to you,” Kubiak said at Reliant Stadium. “He’s doing good. He’s just not yet on the field. We probably have a decision to make. I know he’s worked pretty hard (Monday) with the trainers, so we’ll see.”
Daniels is still recovering from a leg injury and has yet to participate in team activities. He didn't practice Tuesday but is doing some on-field work. Garrett Graham will continue to get the work with Daniels out.

Sanders put together his third consecutive solid performance in Sunday’s 32-28 win over the Cleveland Browns. The fourth-round pick caught eight passes for a season-high 67 yards.
Sanders had contributed 61 receiving yards in each of the last two games prior to Sunday. His emergence came after a four-game stretch in which he caught two passes for 20 yards combined.
“As fast as we can, we have to learn our players and their strengths,” Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said. “Sometimes that takes a lot of time. We’re incorporating more things to utilize Ace’s strengths.”
The Jags consider him a mismatch and are trying to find ways to get him the ball in man coverage. They lined Sanders up in the backfield several times, putting a strain on Cleveland's defense. He caught multiple passes out of the backfield as well. As the story points out, Sanders accounted for six of the team’s 22 first downs. He was at his best on third down, helping the Jaguars convert three times. The Jaguars were 7-of-16 on third down. He has some limited value here, but could be a help in deeper leagues as the team is looking to get him the ball. Mike Brown's value takes a bit of a hit as a result.
