Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew says he will play in Week 15 despite hamstring injury

Looking one week ahead, Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew @Jones_Drew32 said during a Friday radio interview that he "definitely" expects to play next week versus the Packers. He then backed up just a tad.
"I mean, I just want to make sure everything is on track," Jones-Drew said. "And then we'll see how it goes next week but I expect to be out there playing with my teammates.
"It's what we, I think, what we figured out was just a strained hamstring. I've played with those before so it's not that big of a deal."
Jones-Drew suffered the injury to his right leg late in the Jaguars' win over the Texans on Thursday. Jones-Drew didn't play the rest of the game and underwent an MRI on Friday. It sounds like the MRI didn't show anything too serious.

Fantasy Analysis:

I'd be a little cautious here because hamstring injuries don't tend to heal quickly, but MJD will have had about 10 days to recover by the time the Bills game comes around. He has played his best football in the past three weeks, and the Bills have allowed an average of 17.3 fantasy points to lead opposing running backs in their last three games. MJD would be a strong RB2 if he can get right in time for Week 15. If Jones-Drew can't go, Jordan Todman @JordanTodman would probably start in his place.
