Maurice Jones-Drew injury: Jaguars RB continues rehab in Miami


Jones-Drew was allowed to leave after he stayed to learn the new Jaguars offense.

As Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew continues to rehab from a foot injury that ended his 2012 season early, he'll do so away from the team's facility and will instead travel to Miami to work with a foot specialist. On Monday, Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley told Vito Stellino of the Florida Times-Union that Jones-Drew was cleared to leave after he learned the team's new offense:

Bradley had said he wanted Jones-Drew to stay with the team while they installed the new offense.

"I said we need you here and he did that and he said, ‘OK, now that we've all the installs done let's take the next step.' ''

In Miami, Jones-Drew will work with Pete Bommarito, a trainer that he has worked with in the past along with former-Jaguars running back Fred Taylor. Jones-Drew, 28, is entering the final season of the five-year contract extension he signed with the team in 2009.

After holding out for a new contract for most of the 2012 offseason, Jones-Drew reported to the team without a new deal and played in a reserve role in Week 1. After just five starts, Jones-Drew suffered a broken bone in his foot that cost him the remainder of his season.

In seven seasons with the Jaguars, Jones-Drew has accumulated 7,268 rushing yards, 63 rushing touchdowns and 11 receiving touchdowns.
