Jacksonville Jaguars star running back Maurice Jones-Drew is expected to miss the remainder of the preseason due to a minor knee injury, according to several NFL sources with knowledge of the situation.
We're told that Jones-Drew recently underwent an arthroscopic procedure to clean out his knee from wear and tear.
Per one source, Jones-Drew had been dealing with lingering meniscus issues.
According to one source, Jones-Drew would be able to play as soon as this weekend's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers if it were a regular-season game.
However, the Jaguars are proceeding with caution with their featured back.
Jones hasn't practiced all week and has insisted to reporters that he's not hurt.
