It wasn’t a hit, exactly, and Maurice Jones-Drew later called it a "thud." No matter the definition, he liked it.

Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew provided an upbeat report on the condition of his surgically repaired right knee Sunday after practicing in team drills Saturday night. "I got to practice with the team the whole time, which was awesome. No swelling. No nothing. Everything is great, and I think that is a positive step in where we need to go," he said.
