Jacksonville Jaguars running back and consensus top-five pick Maurice Jones-Drew will miss the rest of the preseason, according to a report from the National Football Post.

According to the report, Jones-Drew has been dealing with meniscus issues in his knee stemming from a recent arthroscopic surgery.

If you've already drafted MJD, don't freak out. He's not expected to miss any regular-season action ... yet. But still, you'd like your top pick to have a clean bill of health heading into the season.

He was the third guy off my board, and clearly in the top tier of running backs (joined by Chris Johnson, Adrian Peterson and Ray Rice) that you should draft above anybody else. I'll keep him up there for now, but I won't fault you if you want to bump him down a few spots.
