Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew told reporters earlier this week that he should have undergone surgery on his injured foot earlier in the season rather than wait in hopes of returning to action in 2012, reports Vito Stellino of The Florida Times-Union. “I should have had it a little earlier than when I did but it’s just something that you learn from,’’ he said. “You’ve just got to keep going.’’  When asked if he regrets not getting the surgery earlier, he said, “It’s a part of the deal I guess. I tried to go. It just didn’t work and then finally enough was enough." Jones-Drew finally underwent surgery last week in Charlotte, North Carolina, though he was sidelined for much of the season due to his foot injury. While he didn’t suit up after sustaining his injury in October, Jones-Drew remained on the Jaguars’ active roster.
