Jaguars vs. Texans injury report: Maurice Jones-Drew out, Blaine Gabbert probable

Jake Roth-US PRESSWIRE

The Jacksonville Jaguars will be without star running back Maurice Jones-Drew for the fourth straight week when they take on the Houston Texans this Sunday. MJD has not played for Jacksonville since its Week 7 loss in Oakland.

But the Jaguars should have starting quarterback Blaine Gabbert, who fully participated in practice all week and is officially listed as probable; Gabbert has been nursing a shoulder injury. Center Brad Meester (foot) is also probable.

Fullback Greg Jones (thigh) as well as defensive backs Dwight Lowery (ankle) and Rashean Mathis (groin) are also out for Jacksonville this weekend.

The Texans have a lengthier injury report, though most of their banged up players are expected to be ready to go. Defensive back Alan Ball (ankle), defensive tackle Shaun Cody (ribs/back), safety Quintin Demps (thumb/forearm/toe), linebacker Bradie James (thumb), wide receiver Lestar Jean (knee), defensive back Brice McCain (knee), linebacker Jesse Nading (foot), offensive guard Wade Smith (knee), defensive end Antonio Smith (ankle), wide receiver Kevin Walter (groin) and quarterback T.J. Yates (elbow) are all probable.

Houston running back Ben Tate (hamstring) will not play, while tight end Owen Daniels (back) and linebacker Tim Dobbins (shoulder) are questionable.
