Running Back

RB | Maurice Jones-Drew | Jacksonville Jaguars | Injury, Fantasy
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew (knee) expressed confidence that his game will not be affected by his January knee surgery. "I can still carry the load regardless of what surgery I had or whatnot," Jones-Drew said. "They're going to be kind of anxious to throw Rashad (Jennings) in, and they're already kind of scared of my knee ... I want to be able to be out the gates playing because it's a production-based business. They're already skeptical maybe it's his knee, maybe we're working him too hard, we should give him a break." Offensive coordinator Dick Koetter indicated that, while the team will likely be careful with Jones-Drew in the preseason, the Jaguars have no plans to hold him back during the 2011 regular season. "There's been no discussions in the offensive staff room of Maurice's knee," Koetter said. "... I can assure you ... coach (Jack) Del Rio has never said to me when we get to the season we've gotta hold Maurice back."
