The All-Pro told Sirius NFL Radio on Friday evening that he is 80-85 percent healthy and that he’ll be 100 percent in three or four weeks.
Jones-Drew, 26, tore cartilage in his meniscus during the preseason. He accumulated 1,324 rushing yards and five touchdowns during the year despite the injury, although the damage to his knee did eventually catch up with Jones-Drew as he missed the final two games of the season.
