I am so excited to find out that Maurice Jones-Drew will be back playing football this season! I started following Jones-Drew’s recovery closely after finding out he had lisfranc surgery on Dec 28th, 2012. His return to full running back status has given me hope that I will indeed one day walk normally again without pain.
I am nowhere near professional athlete status and knowing that Jones-Drew had lisfranc surgery, dealt with the long painful recovery and is now actually playing football again is inspiring. Congratulations Maurice Jones-Drew!

“We’re extremely excited about the progress he has made,” Bradley told reporters.
The 28-year-old Jones-Drew missed 10 games in 2012 because of a Lisfranc injury to his left foot. The running back underwent surgery in December and spent several months in a walking boot.
“Now, it’s back to football,” Jones-Drew told reporters. “It’s been a long time coming. I’m excited to be out there running around and playing.”
He said he was training during his rehab “like I wasn’t hurt.”
Now, it s back to football. It’s been a long time coming. I’m excited to be out there running around and playing.
