JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew is back at practice.

Jones-Drew, who missed most of the last two weeks of work amid reports he was dealing with a knee injury, returned to practice Monday and expects to ready for Sunday's season opener against Denver.

He says his knee is "a non-issue." He says there are a lot of "false reports" out there.

Jones-Drew ran six times for minus-2 yards in the preseason. His longest run was 3 yards. He missed the last two games and insists he "was just resting. It was preseason."

Jones-Drew ran 312 times for 1,391 yards and 15 touchdowns last season -- all career highs. He believes he's done enough work during summer workouts and training camp to be ready for the Broncos.
