Maurice Jones-Drew won't be relegated to the sideline for Jacksonville's next preseason game.
Jones-Drew says "this is the right time to kind of take that next step."
Coach Gus Bradley held Jones-Drew out of the team's preseason opener against Miami as a precaution, preferring to give the former UCLA standout more time to get in better shape.
Bradley says Jones-Drew's playing time will be decided in a meeting Wednesday night.
Jones-Drew had surgery in December to repair a Lisfranc injury. He was cleared to practice days before training camp.
