Maurice Jones-Drew to get MRI for hamstring injury


Even the good news for the Jaguars comes with an asterisk these days.

After last night’s win over the Texans, their third straight and fourth in their last five games, the Jaguars were riding high. Now they’ll have to wait to see if they’ll have their most accomplished player when they try to extend the streak.

According to Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union, Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew has a strained hamstring, and will get an MRI to determine the severity.

Jones-Drew topped 100 yards for the first time since last September last night. After the game, he said of his condition “I’ll be fine.”

The veteran back hasn’t looked like himself this season, but he also hasn’t been in the best position to perform. The Jaguars are still last in the league in offense, and the early holes they found themselves in weekly during the first half of the season cut into his chances.
