Eight months ago, Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew underwent a Lisfranc surgery. Despite that, Jones-Drew has showed no signs at all that he is recovering from a serious injury.
“His foot has held up in camp and he got his work in during the last two preseason games,” writes Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Union-Times. “Everything about [Maurice Jones-Drew]’s progress has been positive.”
Maurice Jones-Drew got his first taste of preseason action the New York Jets a little over a week ago.
“I understand I haven’t played in a while,” Jones-Drew said in the week leading up to that game. “Things have been going better than we thought. This is the right time to kind of take that next step. That’s all it is. I don’t think it’s more than that. I don’t think someone’s walking on water or someone cured cancer. Trust me. It’s just exciting to get out there and finally get some live reps and play with some guys and see what it’s like.”
“I feel good. Things are going in the right direction… A lot of people come off injuries and come back to play football. It’s not a debut.”
