Maurice Jones-Drew Getting More Comfortable In Jaguars Offense

After holding out for 38 days and missing the majority of the preseason, Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew said Wednesday that he's starting to get more comfortable in the team's offense heading into its Week 2 matchup against the Houston Texans.

"Oh yeah. You know trying to learn what a lot of guys learn in five, six months in two days was pretty tough, but once we broke it down to the game plan it helped me out a bunch and then this week obviously learning the game plan, how we want to attack people, you just learn how our offensive coordinator wants to go about things and so it kind of makes it easier."

Jones-Drew carried the ball 19 times for 77 yards -- good for an average of 4.1 yards per attempt -- in Jacksonville's Week 1, overtime loss to the Minnesota Vikings. This week in practice, he's reclaimed the starting running back job from Rashad Jennings, who is dealing with a knee injury.
