Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew says that he’s able to cut while running without having any discomfort in his foot.
“It just feels comfortable making those cuts and knowing there’s no pain in the foot, ankle, whatever,” Jones-Drew said, via the Associated Press. “Not running for eight months, it’s like, ‘Can I still do it?’ But I’ve been playing football for 20 years and it’s just natural.”
The main thing for MJD is for his foot to used to making cuts on a regular basis.
“The main thing for me is just getting back to where I can carry the ball 20 or 25 times a game,” he added. “Obviously, right now, I feel like I can do it. But it’s different when you’re getting the ball play after play after play.”
Jones-Drew allegedly got about 12 or so reps with the Jags first team offense on Friday. On the final play Jones-Drew said he felt like he had his burst back.
“I feel like I had a little burst,” he said. “I feel like I did some old stuff. I just want to continue that and continue on that track.”
With the Jaguars current quarterback situation, the offense will continue to run through Jones-Drew. They need him to be 100 percent healthy in 2013.
