Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew indicated Monday as the players said their goodbyes that he probably should have had the surgery sooner.
“I should have had it a little earlier than when I did but it’s just something that you learn from,’’ he said. “You’ve just got to keep going.’’
When asked if he regrets not getting the surgery earlier, he said, “It’s a part of the deal I guess. I tried to go. It just didn’t work and then finally enough was enough.’’
The possibility of having surgery immediately after the injury was an option, he said, “but at the time when we were talking about it, the thought was to let it heal a little bit and see how things go. Just waited a little too long at the end of the day.’’
