JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Jaguars running back Fred Taylor is still bothered by a hamstring injury and will miss Sunday's game against New England.

Taylor hurt his right hamstring against Indianapolis almost two weeks ago and then aggravated the injury in last week's game at Tennessee.

Taylor missed three days of practice this week, and today coach Jack Del Rio downgraded him from "questionable" to "out."

Del Rio says rookie Maurice Drew will start in Taylor's place.
