Daily Links: Maurice Jones-Drew and Terrance Knighton Edition

Jones-Drew on his fantasy value:

““Pretty much every reporter, ‘Will he be back, is it possible to come back and do what he’s done?’” Jones-Drew told reporters Monday. “A lot of fantasy football gurus who have never stepped on the field before or ever been in the locker room, they know the best about football.””

More on MJD’s knee:

““I love it,” MJD told Jaguars.com on Sunday. “I kind of got that feel back getting hit. Today was no soreness, no setbacks. No nothing.”

Jones-Drew missed two games last season and scored nine fewer touchdowns than he did in 2009, but the five-year veteran still racked up 1,641 total yards and earned his second-consecutive trip to the Pro Bowl.”

Terrance Knighton is back in practice:

“Knighton, who arrived at training camp more than 20 pounds overweight, was cleared to practice Saturday and could play in the team’s second preseason game next week. He said he’s “somewhere in the 340s,” still leaving him some weight to lose before getting to the 335 pounds the team feels will get him in “fighting shape.”

“I’m just happy to be back with the team,” Knighton said. “Had to shed a few to get back out on the field. I did that. Now I’m just ready to get some football stuff done.””
