Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew is getting tests on his strained right hamstring.
Coach Gus Bradley says Jones-Drew will have an MRI to determine the extent of the injury.
Bradley says, ”We’ll know more about it once we get the results back.”
Jones-Drew strained his hamstring late in Thursday night’s 27-20 victory against Houston. He ran 14 times for a season-high 103 yards, including a 48-yarder in the third quarter that set up the winning touchdown. He also had 20 yards receiving.
Jones-Drew, who missed most of last season with a foot injury, has 719 yards rushing this season – 264 yards in the last three games, all wins.
Jones-Drew insisted after Thursday night’s win that he would be fine.

Don’t look now, but the Jacksonville Jaguars have won four of their last five games and still have a shot at making the 2014 NFL Playoffs.

The Jacksonville Jaguars now have the longest winning streak in the AFC. Can you believe that? This team is having fun and their fun continued with a win over the Houston Texans, beating Gary Kubiak’s team 27-20 in prime time. The Jaguars are pulling every trick play out of the hat to pull off these victories. For the 2nd week in a row we saw someone else other than the Jaguars quarterback throw a touchdown pass. This week it was Ace Sanders who heaved the ball across the field after a he received a pass behind the line of scrimmage from quarterback Henne. Sanders found Todman down field and the Jaguars would find the end zone in the 2nd game in a row with the trick play. The Jaguars should consider sending the Houston Texans a thank you card for their contribution to this win. Houston was flagged 14 times in the game for 177 yards setting a record for penalties. The Jaguars who were once considered the worst team in the NFL this season are now 4-9 and if the can win out they could …
Jordan Todman could be a fantasy possibility for Week 15 depending on the status of Maurice Jones-Drew. MJD was having his best game of the season on Thursday night before exiting the Jacksonville Jaguars’ 27-20 win over the Houston Texans in the fourth quarter with a hamstring injury. Todman came in and replaced him before […]
At 28 and coming off a serious injury some have said that the running back known as Mighty Mouse–or Maurice Jones-Drew– is on the down side of his career already. If you just look at his stats for this season you might think that the naysayers are right. Than again, he does play for the Jacksonville Jaguars. It’s kind of hard to look good playing for them.That is, unless you’re playing the Houston Texans.Gifdsports.comMJD went for a season 84 yards a couple weeks ago when Jacksonville beat the Texans in Houston. Thursday night he broke the 100-yard barrier for the first time this season with 103 yards on 14 carries.Yeah, it isn’t much fun to be a fan of the Texans right about now. Loading…
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Somebody’s losing streak of considerable length had to come to an end Thursday night.
Though the Jacksonville Jaguars had won three of their previous four games, they hadn’t managed a victory at home since defeating the Tennessee Titans in November of last year. They were finally able to end that drought at the expense of the Houston Texans, who have lost 11 in a row after a 2-0 start.
Unlike when the teams met less than two weeks ago in Houston and combined for just one touchdown, the end zone wasn’t so hard to reach. That no doubt came as a relief to the NFL Network, which doesn’t have the luxury of rescheduling its prime-time matchups late in the season like NBC does on Sunday nights.
Here are five observations from the 27-20 victory that improved the Jaguars’ record to 4-9:
1. Miss the start of a game now, and you’ll miss a lot.
For the fourth time in the past five weeks, the Jaguars scored on their opening possession. On third-and-goal from the 1, tight
The Houston Texans’ nightmare season reached a new low late Thursday night, falling to the Jacksonville Jaguars for a second time this season. On the positive side, Houston furthered their campaign to claim the top draft selection in next year’s draft. So, what did we learn in the Texans’ eleventh straight loss?
First and foremost, Matt Schaub is still a better quarterback than Case Keenum. In addition to that, it seems somewhat obvious Keenum isn’t the quarterback of the future in Houston.
Statistically, Matt Schaub wasn’t actually that much better than Keenum, especially after throwing a game-ending interception with just over two minutes to play. That being said, Schaub clearly provided a spark, shock, or some other positive motivation to the Texans’ offense. One would believe Matt Schaub did enough to earn his spot in the starting lineup. Now, the Texans have to determine whether they’ll move forward with Schaub, and if the answer is no, it’ll be on to the draft to find …
The Jaguars are looking to make quite an impression on their Jacksonville home crowd under the bright Thursday Night Football lights. They pulled off a nice little flea flicker pass earlier in the game, but they didn’t stop there.
Chad Henne threw left behind the line of scrimmage to WR Ace Sanders which initially looked like a check down throw. He then proceeds back right, but what does he do? Sanders winds up and delivers a right corner endzone bomb to RB Jordan Todman for six. Check it out!

YouTube I imagine it went something like this: Man: “Hey Honey, how about we go get bored stiff watching the Jaguars play the Texans tonight?” Women: “Are you serious? Carrie Underwood is the lead in The Sound of Music tonight.” Man: “But I have a feeling that we might see some really mediocre football tonight. And you know how much I love mediocre football. We can DVR your show and I’ll watch it with you tomorrow night.” The rest, they say, is history.
I’ve been waiting for this celebration. In today’s mobile culture, everyone is guilty of the selfie photo. After Ryan Davis catches a TD pass from Chad Henne, he does his own little selfie in celebration. He’ll upload that one to his endzone status.

Mucho drama for the Creepers fantasy football squads.
Creepin’ down the back-street on deez. Got my Glock cocked cuz suckaz want these.
In the Euro League, despite struggling through the worst of Michael Vick, Nick Foles (none of the good Foles), Geno Smith, Jake Locker, and Jason Campbell, I’m on a five game win streak and might make the playoffs. In this 16 team league, I’ve worked the hardest at snagging emerging talent from the free agent pool.… Read the rest
The post The Creeper Report: Fantasy Football Week 14 appeared first on TPF.
The injury report for the Jacksonville Jaguars is relatively light this week, with only one person listed as questionable (Greg Jones) and everyone else listed as either probable or out.
Cecil Shorts (groin, probable): Shorts has been doing this practice song-and-dance for weeks now as he tries to get himself as ready as he can for game day without over-stressing the strained groin. He’s dealt with multiple injuries this year (shoulder also) and has still managed to gut out some tough performances throughout the year. He’s been the one consistent guy in the Jaguars WR corp and is a lock for his customary 5-8 catches per game. He is in no danger of missing tonight’s game, so expect another day of solid production from Shorts as he continues to try to put this groin issue behind him.
Justin Forsett (non-displaced foot fracture, Out): Although he is out for a minimum of 4-6 weeks, Forsett remains on the active roster after suffering a fractured foot. No word on which exact bone or reg…
Joe Shlabotnik, Flickr Creative CommonsThe Jacksonville Jaguars host the Houston Texans on Thursday Night Football this week, in a match-up that features two teams desperate to show the NFL and its fans that they are still viable talents that can win any given game.On a side note, defensive tackle Jeremy Mincey is no longer in the doghouse of head coach Gus Bradley after sleeping in and missing a team meeting two weeks ago. Mincey was severely disciplined, ultimately missing two games for the infraction. Mincey is expected to play Thursday and help boost a run defense that is slowly progressing, as the unit has turned in quality performances throughout the team’s 3-1 record since the bye-week. The Jaguars have allowed less than 100-yards rushing per contest over their last four games.Jacksonville Jaguars Injury ReportThe Jaguars will be without starting rookie safety Josh Evans, as Evans suffered a shoulder injury in last week’s 32-28 victory over The Cleveland Browns. He w…
Don’t look now, but the Jacksonville Jaguars are hot. Winners of their last three and playing much better football than they have in years, the Jags will look to ride their wave of momentum to another victory as they travel to Houston for this Thursday’s matchup with the Texans.While the name might not stand out, the ability will. The Jaguars return their backup tight end in Allen Reisner to practice this week, as the depth option was hampered by an MCL injury that he suffered in a Week 5 matchup with the St. Louis Rams.Reisner is not expected to suit up for Thursday’s game against the Texans, as the compressed week has not afforded the blocking tight end a chance to be deemed game ready. Reisner was on the short-term injured reserve, and was allowed to return to practice two weeks ago. Reisner will look to aid in the team’s offensive resurgence, providing ample blocking room for Maurice Jones-Drew as the Jaguars take small steps towards success.
