Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew is looking forward to returning to the field following foot surgery.

Maurice Jones-Drew has said that he "can't wait" to return to playing as he continues to recover from a foot injury.

The running back managed just the first six games for the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2012 before sustaining a Lisfranc fracture in his left foot.

The 28-year-old, who has been completing his history degree during the off-season, told NFL Total Access: "I just got back to Jacksonville a couple weeks ago from school, just have been rehabbing every day and getting used to the off-season program.

"I'll be back at full speed by probably the end of May, beginning of June, and I just can't wait to get back out there and play. I only had six weeks of football last year, so it's just going to be exciting to get back and be with my teammates."

Jones-Drew underwent surgery to correct the problem in December.
