Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew said he's ahead of schedule in his recovery from arthroscopic knee surgery, *The Florida Times-Union* reported.
Jones-Drew, who said he's already able to run, had surgery in January after playing the entire season with a torn meniscus in his left knee.
"The knee's doing great," Jones-Drew said Tuesday on his weekly Sirius NFL Radio show. "I've been meeting with doctors everyday, just been pushing through, working through everything."
The condition of Jones-Drew's knee deteriorated during the course of the season, and it needed to be drained the night before a key Week 14 matchup at Indianapolis.
After that loss, Jones-Drew had to shut it down for the final two games. Even so, he rushed for 1,324 yards and five touchdowns and caught 34 passes for two more TDs en route to being selected to his second Pro Bowl.
