Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew had his operation on Dec. 28 and doesn’t expect to be cleared for football activity until early this summer.
But he expects to return to the form that won him the NFL rushing title in 2010 (1,606 yards); he was limited to six games and one touchdown this past year.
Jones-Drew revealed the injury was a “mid-foot fracture,” not the more serious Lisfranc break that was assumed by many but never confirmed since then coach Mike Mularkey would never elaborate.
“I did mess up some things, but it wasn’t what people thought it was,” Jones-Drew said.
MJD will likely hold 2nd round value if he enters the 2013 healthy and ready to play.
