Bills could face backup RB again

Posted by Chris Brown on December 11, 2013 – 10:19 am

For the second straight week the Bills could be squaring off against a backup running back. Jacksonville Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew is trying to come back from a hamstring injury suffered late in their game last Thursday night, but won’t practice until late in the week.

According to multiple reports Jones-Drew will test his ailing hamstring on Friday. If he can’t go Jordan Todman, a first-year player, will step into the starting lineup. Todman has 138 rushing yards and two touchdowns for the Jags this season in his backup role.

Jones-Drew is averaging 3.5 yards per carry this season.

Buffalo faced a third-string running back in Bobby Rainey last Sunday. Rainey finished last week’s game with 127 yards on 22 carries including an 80-yard TD.

Jones-Drew gives Bills ‘D’ credit

Posted by Chris Brown on November 23, 2009 – 12:05 am

Maurice Jones-Drew was held to just 70 total yards from scrimmage by the Bills in Sunday’s game, and the power back gave the injury-riddled Buffalo defense a tip of that hat after the Bills 18-15 defeat.

“Buffalo did a great job of loading the box and staying disciplined,” said Jones-Drew. “We knew all week that they were a real disciplined team. I told you guys earlier in the week when your coach is fired; there are two ways you can go. They went the positive route. We fought hard, they fought hard.”

While it serves as little consolation in the loss, it does speak to how interim head coach Perry Fewell got the team to perform after a very tumultuous week.
