After 38 days of not reporting and speculation of a possible trade, Jones-Drew finally showed up at the team’s facilities to resume training. He could be fined close to $1.2 million by the team, if the choose to go that route. It is worth nothing that players receive their paychecks this week, so this probably had some barring on Jones-Drew’s decision.
With just a week to go until the season kicks off, Jones-Drew will need to get up to speed after a month of no activity. Rashad Jennings will carry most of the load for the time being and ix expected to be the starter for the season opener against the Vikings.
