Details are sparse but ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter tweeted that Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew would be returning to the team today. Schefter's exact words via Twitter, "Here we go: MJD returning to Jaguars today. Carry on." Expect many updates regarding his return and potential playing time.
I nearly traded for Rashad Jennings yesterday in one league where I've got MJD as my top back. Patience is a virtue! Jones-Drew isn't a lock to play in Week 1 by any means but considering he was slipping nearly into the third round, what a value pick now that he's returning. The Jaguars have to be patting themselves on the back for allowing this to play out without caving into his demands. For those who have Jennings, don't cut him loose just yet since he could start in Week 1 and may have carved a larger role for himself during the preseason.
