Jones-Drew Set to Miss Mini-Camp

Jones-Drew runs with the ball for Jacksonville

The Jaguars open their first voluntary mini-camp of the 2012 season on Tuesday and they will do so without star running back Maurice Jones-Drew.

Jones-Drew, the NFL’s leading rusher, has opted to workout at home in California rather than with the team in Florida. This camp is voluntary so there will be no punishments, nor is there any reason for concern. Jones-Drew also missed the strength and conditioning program as he got married the day before it.

Jones-Drew has missed mini-camps and voluntary team work-outs in the past and it has never been a negative factor in his play.

Other players scheduled to miss the first voluntary mini-camp are defensive tackle Terrance Knighton, who was recently injured in a night club brawl and kicker Josh Scobee who is still working on a long term contract after being given the Jaguars franchise tag in February.

Head Coach Mike Mularkey said that he didn’t expect anyone else to miss the mini-camp, “Again, this is a voluntary phase of our off season and we’d like to have them all here, but we’ll find out when we get started in the morning.”
