04:26 PM ET 06.05 | Jones-Drew is recovering from Lisfranc surgery on his left foot. He arrived for the team's offseason conditioning program out of shape -- he hasn't been able to run full speed since December -- but believed the extra weight would come off by training camp. He had hoped to be running by the end of May. Last month, Jones-Drew got permission to leave organized team activities and start working out on his own in Miami. "It sounds like he's making good progress and that his weight is coming down," Bradley said. "It feels like the workouts are going good down there." The best evidence will be when he returns to Jacksonville for a mandatory, three-day minicamp next week. The trip might also include a talk with investigators and possibly a chat with teammates.

So for seven months he's been unable to exercise like he normally would have, and he's out of shape now? Who'd a thunk it?

He may be out of shape but he still has that "one hitter" working. Or at least so I hear.

Kind of hard to blame being out of shape on a foot injury. There are ways to keep your weight down besides running.

Last Year before the season started he was holding out until he got a new deal, the team did not give in and now he's lucky if he makes the team, go figure!!!
