Maurice Jones-Drew Says He’ll Be Full Speed By Early June
Posted By Sam Greenberg On April 12, 2013 @ 8:16 am In Florida News,NFL | No Comments
Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew played just six games during the 2012 season, which means it’s been quite a while since he’s been on a football field.
“I just got back to Jacksonville a couple weeks ago from school, just have been rehabbing every day and getting used to the offseason program,” Jones-Drew said during an appearance on the NFL Network. “I’ll be back at full speed by probably the end of May, beginning of June, and I just can’t wait to get back out there and play. I only had six weeks of football last year, so it’s just going to be exciting to get back and be with my teammates.”
If Jones-Drew’s timetable holds, he should be available to take part in June’s minicamp. The Jaguars probably won’t push him too hard too fast since a healthy Jones-Drew figures to be their best offensive weapon, but getting some work in before the start of training camp would likely make everyone feel better about Jones-Drew’s status heading into the season.
