In the fourth quarter on Thursday, with the Jaguars trying to put away a victory against the Texans, running back Maurice Jones-Drew left the game with a bad limp after making a 15-yard reception. He didn't return, and Jacksonville was forced to use Jordan Todman and Denard Robinson at running back for the rest of the night.

On Friday, Jaguars coach Gus Bradley told reporters that Jones-Drew had suffered a strained hamstring and that he would undergo an MRI later in the day.

It was an unfortunate blow for Jones-Drew, who was at the end of his most productive day of the year, gaining 103 rushing yards on 14 carries to go with two receptions for 20 yards.

As for Jones-Drew's self-diagnosis after Jacksonville's win, he said, "I'll be fine."
