Jordan Todman is ready to go.
If Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew cannot play in Sunday's game against Buffalo because of a strained right hamstring, Todman would get his first career start. The first-year running back from Connecticut has spent a total of 21 weeks on practice squads in his short career but has done a solid job for the Jaguars this season as the team's kickoff returner and No. 2 running back, writes the Florida Times-Union's Hays Carlyon.
"I'm looking for any opportunity to step on the field," said Todman, who has rushed for 138 yards and two touchdowns in limited carries. "I hope MoJo will be back and help us win this game, but if not, I'm excited for the opportunity. I know it's a big role."
