Maurice Jones-Drew may not play against Texans

It's not looking good for Maurice Jones-Drew this week against the Texans.

The Raiders running back, who had a procedure to his hand this week, is expected to miss Sunday's game against the Texans, according to CSNBayArea.com. The Raiders have yet to announce a decision if he will or not.

If Jones-Drew is out, Darren McFadden would become the starting running back. But with how the Texans front seven looked a week ago against Washington, it may not matter which Raiders running back is playing. It may be tough sledding all game long with Derek Carr being asked to throw more than the coaching staff wants him to.
