Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew said he will 'definitely' be able to play in the team's Week 15 game, according to ProFootballTalk's Mike Florio.

Jones-Drew had an MRI on Friday after straining his hamstring during the Jaguars 27-20 win over the Houston Texans on Thursday night. When he was asked about the injury on SiriusXM's Fantasy Sports Radio he said he would not miss time:

“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.”
