JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Maurice Jones-Drew is out of town, but still in touch with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Coach Gus Bradley praised Jones-Drew on Tuesday for “the communication that’s taken place” since the team’s star running back was allegedly involved in a fight over Memorial Day weekend.
Jones-Drew, who continues to work out in Miami, has not been charged in the May 26 altercation in which a security guard accused the three-time Pro Bowler of punching him at a restaurant/bar in St. Augustine. Police investigators want to interview Jones-Drew about the incident, but he has yet to meet with them.
He did, however, call Bradley and general manager Dave Caldwell last week.
Bradley says, “I’m disappointed in the situation that did occur, but I’m not as far as the communication that’s taken place.”
