As of Monday afternoon, that hadn’t changed.
Jones-Drew, the Jaguars’ three-time Pro Bowl running back who missed Sunday’s loss to the Buffalo Bills with a hamstring injury, has a chance to play against the Tennessee Titans Sunday, Head Coach Gus Bradley said Monday afternoon.
Bradley said more should be known about Jones-Drew’s status later in the week.
“We’ll wait and see where he is Wednesday,” Bradley said Monday, a day after the Jaguars’ 27-20 loss to the Buffalo Bills at EverBank Field on Sunday afternoon.
Jones-Drew is one of several Jaguars battling injury with two games remaining.

“That’s the plan again this week,” Bradley said. “He’s one tough son of a gun with what he’s got going on. His biggest concern is he can play through it but he does not want to hurt the team. We felt like he played pretty good (Sunday). We appreciate that.”
“We’re anticipating he should be OK by Sunday,” Bradley said of Hayes.
Bradley said his ideal would be to elevate players from the practice squad in the event injured players are placed on injured reserve.
