Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew is doubtful to play in Sunday’s game against the Buffalo Bills, head coach Gus Bradley said Friday.

Jones-Drew suffered a hamstring injury in the fourth quarter of last Thursday’s victory over the Houston Texans and said he would like to play against the Bills but has not practiced all week.

He has 719 yards rushing and five touchdowns this season for the Jaguars, who rank last in the league in total offense and rushing.

But while the Jaguars (4-9) have won four of their last five games, Jones-Drew’s future with the team is in doubt.

Jones-Drew has three games left on a five-year, $31 million contract he signed in 2009, and is making $4.95 million this season.
