Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew Reportedly Will Reportedly Miss Rest Of Preseason

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew is out for the rest of the preseason, according to Aaron Wilson of National Football Post.

The report states that Jones-Drew is suffering from a "minor knee injury."

There's been no word yet from the Jaguars if this is the case but Wilson reports Jones-Drew recently went through an arthroscopic procedure to clear out parts of his knee. Jones has been dealing with "lingering meniscus issues", according to Wilson.

Jones hasn't practiced all week and has insisted to reporters that he's not hurt.

"It's like Allen Iverson said, it's practice," Jones-Drew said Thursday. "There's no worries."

Don't panic, though, Jaguars fans. If this were a regular season game, Jones-Drew would be playing. This is more precautionary than anything. It's not expected to affect him during the regular season and it's not expected to stick around long-term.
