The most pressing issue for RB Maurice Jones-Drew is his rehabilitation and conditioning after Lisfranc surgery.
Jaguars General Manager David Caldwell said last week the plan is for Jones-Drew to be 100-percent when camp opens July 26. Jones-Drew said he is optimistic about his progress.
MJD said his foot is now healed and that the focus is now on strengthening the ankle. The foot being healed, he said, is important because now he can run. That, in turn, means he can condition at a level that will allow the weight he added following surgery to come off in time for training camp.
We rank MJD 14th among our running backs with the thought he could crack the top-10. Justin Forsett is his backup but would be limited in value if MJD misses time again.
