Maurice Jones-Drew of the Jacksonville Jaguars has been making cuts on his surgical repaired foot. Jones-Drew had surgery this past off-season, and has been limited so far in camp. Although he has only taken a dozen reps, he believes that he is almost 100%.
When asked on how he feels about making his cuts he said this.
It just feels comfortable making those cuts and knowing there’s no pain in the foot, ankle. The main thing is just getting back to where I can carry the ball 20-25 times a game. Right now, I feel like I can do it. But it’s different when you’re getting the ball play after play after play.”
This is certainly a great sign for Jags fans since they are hoping to get a full season out of their star running back. MJD will look to bounce back from a season where he only scored one touchdown, and totaled 414 yards. It will be interesting to see if Jones-Drew can stay healthy, and get back to elite running back status.
