Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew says that he’s able to cut while running without having any discomfort in his foot.
“It just feels comfortable making those cuts and knowing there’s no pain in the foot, ankle, whatever,” Jones-Drew said, via the Associated Press. “Not running for eight months, it’s like, ‘Can I still do it?’ But I’ve been playing football for 20 years and it’s just natural.”
The main thing for MJD is for his foot to used to making cuts on a regular basis.
“The main thing for me is just getting back to where I can carry the ball 20 or 25 times a game,” he added. “Obviously, right now, I feel like I can do it. But it’s different when you’re getting the ball play after play after play.”
Jones-Drew allegedly got about 12 or so reps with the Jags first team offense on Friday. On the final play Jones-Drew said he felt like he had his burst back.
“I feel like I had a little burst,” he said. “I feel like I did some old stuff. I just want to continue that and continue on that track.”
With the Jaguars current quarterback situation, the offense will continue to run through Jones-Drew. They need him to be 100 percent healthy in 2013.

BEST OF MAXIM
Maurice Jones-Drew's first carry in more than nine months barely got beyond the line of scrimmage.
It was a huge gain for the Jacksonville Jaguars, though.

If there’s one thing that people associate with the Jacksonville Jaguars, it’s a great running game. With the 2013 season just around the corner and training camps just underway around the league, it remains to be seen just what the Jaguars backfield will look like.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Denard Robinson swung out of the backfield to catch a routine-looking pass from Blaine Gabbert, and he dropped it like a hot potato.
Robinson and potatoes have a recent history that he would prefer to erase from his memory. While slicing them in his kitchen with a new set of knives not long after being drafted in the fifth round by the Jacksonville Jaguars...
Two days into training camp, and there are plenty of questions to answer when it comes to the Jacksonville Jaguars.Questions about the offensive line, the new defensive free agents, the play of Maurice Jones-Drew and of coure, the mediocre play of the quarterbacks.The quarterbacks remain the hot button topic as both Chad Henne and Blaine Gabbert have been average in their performance...
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- The Jacksonville Jaguars have cut tight end Kyler Reed and safety Chris Banjo, making room for receiver Cole McKenzie and place-kicker Adam Yates.
The Jaguars made the moves Thursday, the eve of training camp.

We doubt there are many (any?) Jacksonville Jaguars fans who could compete with the memorabilia collection of superfan Stephen Dickey.
Jaguars kicker Josh Scobee recently added to Dickey's collection, giving him the cleat (autographed) that booted a 59-yard game-winning field goal against the Peyton Manning-led Indianpolis Colts in 2010.
The Jacksonville Jaguars have waived safety Chris Banjo as well as tight end Kyler Reed. Banjo who didn’t play in the NFL last season as well as Reed who is an undrafted rookie, will look to jump into another camp, but there are no guarantees that they will find interest.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Jacksonville Jaguars placed wide receiver Justin Blackmon on the PUP list to start training camp.
Blackmon is still recovering from groin surgery, which is likely what led him to being placed on the PUP list. He can be activated at any time during camp.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Marcedes Lewis slipped on his headphones after practice Saturday, sprawled out in front of his locker and closed his eyes.
No doubt it's been a while since the veteran tight end has been able to really relax in Jacksonville.
After signing a five-year, 35 million contract in August 2011, Lewis has endured two forgettable seasons with the Jaguars.
