Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew revealed to the Florida Times-Union that he had a "mid-foot" fracture that cost him the majority of the 2012 season.
Jones-Drew's injury had previously been speculated as a Lisfranc injury, something the club never revealed one way or the other during the season. Jones-Drew made the rounds in New Orleans, site of the Super Bowl, this week with his left foot still in a cast from surgery last month.
The Jaguars are undergoing changes, with a new general manager in David Caldwell and a new head coach in Gus Bradley, who takes over after Mike Mularkey was fired after just one season.
“I have a good vibe from everybody,” Jones-Drew said. “One of my friends asked me the other day, ‘How do you think you’re going to do this year?’ I told him I feel like we’re going to win it. That’s every year. Obviously, this year wasn’t one of the best years we’ve had and Mr. [Shad] Khan felt we needed a chance and now that we have it, hopefully we can win.”
