‘Back to normal again,’ Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew must relocate from Jacksonville


Maurice Jones-Drew needs to run from the Jaguars.

Feeling “no pain” and “back to normal again,” Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew wants to play in Friday’s preseason opener against the Miami Dolphins in Jacksonville.

Entering the final year of a $31 million deal, Jones-Drew is recovering from a surgically repaired foot.

“I’m cutting great, no swelling,” said Jones-Drew, 28, who earlier this summer was accused of knocking a doorman onto Queer Street in St. Augustine, Florida.

Scheduled to earn $4.95 million in 2013, the three-time All-Pro will be helped in the backfield by rookie Denard Robinson.

Taking into account Jacksonville’s 2-14 record in the AFC South and primarily atrocious 53-man roster, new head coach Gus Bradley will certainly rely on the legs of Jones-Drew.

Destined to be overworked by Bradley, the 2011 NFL rushing champion should focus, dominate, and seek greener pastures as a free agent next spring.

Although being “back to normal again,” Jones-Drew will hardly handle the pigskin in a pointless game against Miami.

Regardless, after an exhausting autumn, expect Maurice Jones-Drew to bolt from “The Bold New City of the South.”
