Jones-Drew gained 103 yards on 14 carries Thursday against Houston before exiting the game with a hamstring injury. He added 20 yards receiving.
The fact that MJD was unable to return isn't great, but speaking after the game, he said his injury was minor. The outing was his first 100-yard game of the year, and while he hasn't scored in consecutive weeks after doing so in the previous three contests, he's averaged 116 total yards over the last three weeks. The extra recovery time will likely provide Jones-Drew a better chance at starting in Week 15 against Buffalo.
