Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew (foot) was among nine players who either didn’t practice or weren’t present because of academic commitments.
Jones-Drew said he ran 30 yards at three-quarters speed during the workout.
“That was exciting,” he said. “Lately, it’s been one day on, a day off, two days on, a day off — it’s part of the process.
I’m closer than I think. I just want to take my time and make sure we do it the right way.”
Jones-Drew’s goal is to resume full-scale training for the month leading into the start of training camp the last week of July.
MJD is one of the league's most productive running backs when healthy. Not only is the foot a concern, but the Jaguars are switching to a zone blocking scheme which isn't always a step forward (i.e. Darren McFadden in 2012).
