Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew knew that his offseason schedule this year would revolve around his rehab schedule after having December surgery to repair a Lisfranc fracture in his left foot, so he figured he could knock out several classes while receiving daily treatment from the Bruins medical staff.
The Jaguars changed general managers and coaches after the season, and Jones-Drew says he has talked just twice with new coach Gus Bradley, who informed him that the team plans to "run the rock."
That's fine with Jones-Drew, who has set his sights on 2,000 yards this season. Never mind that he only recently started putting weight on his surgically-repaired foot. His tentative schedule is to begin wearing a regular shoe this weekend, start running in May, and be full-go in June.
This is first time that the injury has been characterized as a Lisfranc injury, which makes it all the more odd that MJD waited until late December to undergo surgery. Regardless, if he can get healthy for training camp, he's going to hold fringe RB1 value heading into 2013 fantasy drafts. From 2009 to 2011, MJD finished in the top 7 in fantasy PPG.
