Football Nation has learned that Jacksonville Jaguars star running back Maurice Jones-Drew is still nursing an injured hamstring, which makes his availability for Sunday in the the team's final home game questionable.Jaguars coach Gus Bradley listed Jones-Drew as questionable following Friday’s practice. He said the final decision will likely be made on Sunday morning after working out Jones-Drew.“I do feel better today,” Bradley said on Jacksonville.com. “He was in on the run plays and he took some actual reps although the tempo was slowed down obviously with just hats on. I said ‘We need to see you where you made tremendous progress over the last couple of days.’ It will be interesting to see from [head athletic trainer] Mike [Ryan] but all tales tell us that he made good progress.”Jones-Drew was hurt in a 27-20 win over Houston on Dec. 5. The three-time Pro Bowl back missed Sunday’s 27-20 loss to Buffalo.Jones-Drew has caught his second wind in the second half of the season. In the win over the Texans two weeks ago, Jones-Drew had his first 100-yard game of the season. Should he not be able to play on Sunday, Jordan Todman will get his second start of his career this season.In other Jaguars news.Going for a recordAs part of the Jacksonville.com story, Marcedes Lewis has receiving touchdowns in three straight games and the current mark is four games by Reggie Williams six years ago.The tight end has been a major part of the Jaguars' passing offense and figures to be a bigger part with the loss of Cecil Shorts for the remainder of the season.“During the [off-season] I was really excited about what he could bring to the passing game,” Jaguars offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch said.Lewis didn’t play a full game until Week 7 against San Diego. He has several big gainers — 31, 27, 18 and 25 yards. His last three touchdowns have measured 8 yards (on a pass from Jones-Drew), 1 yard (on a fade over Houston cornerback Kareem Jackson) and 13 yards (on a tight end screen pass).
