lisfranc recovery encouragement

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!

Maurice Jones-Drew has been cleared by the Jacksonville Jaguars‘ medical staff to participate in training camp, although he will be brought along slowly, coach Gus Bradley said Tuesday.

“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.”
