Gameday update: MJD will play

Posted Dec 22, 2013

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew will play in 2013 regular-season home finale.

JACKSONVILLE – Maurice Jones-Drew will play in the Jaguars’ regular-season home finale.

So will safety Johnathan Cyprien, though the news wasn’t as good late Sunday morning for defensive tackle Roy Miller and outside linebacker Geno Hayes, each of whom will miss a game for the first time this season.

Jones-Drew, the Jaguars’ three-time Pro Bowl running back, will be active when the Jaguars play host to the Tennessee Titans at EverBank Field Sunday at 1 p.m. He had been listed as questionable after missing practice Wednesday and Thursday and working limited Friday.

Jones-Drew, the Jaguars’ leading rusher, missed last week’s loss to Buffalo.

Miller, who had started the first 14 games despite playing much of the season with a shoulder injury, and Hayes – who also had started the first 14 games – were among seven players made inactive by the Jaguars an hour and a half before kickoff.

The others were quarterback Ricky Stanzi, running back Delone Carter, center Patrick Lewis, tight end Allen Reisner, defensive end Gerald Rivers.

Miller and Hayes each had been questionable this week, with Hayes missing all three days of practice after leaving the Buffalo game twice with the knee issue. Miller had been practicing limited because of the shoulder injury for several weeks, but had been able to play until this week.

Cyprien missed his first start of the season last week, but was listed as probable Friday, which meant he was expected to play.
