Assault charges against former UCLA running back Maurice Drew were dropped after a surveillance video showed Drew leaving the Westwood Denny's restaurant at the start of the April 23 altercation. "From the very beginning, we were confident that upon completion of a thorough investigation into the matter, Maurice would be vindicated," Drew's attorney, Adisa Bakari, said in a statement. "Needless to say, Maurice is pleased with the decision."

Jacksonville running back Maurice Jones-Drew allegedly punched a security guard in the face at a St. Augustine, Fla., bar and restaurant, according to a police report obtained by multiple media sources. But the former UCLA star's agent says no charges have been filed and denies that his client was involved in the alleged incident Sunday at the Conch House. "We have confirmed with the St. Augustine Police Department that no charges have been filed against Maurice and that the matter is under investigation," Adisa Bakari told NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.

Running back Maurice Drew didn't participate in practice for the third consecutive day on Friday, but this time he attended the Bruin workout. Drew, the team's leading rusher, has been bedridden for two days with flu that has knocked four players out of practice this week. He showed up Friday bundled in a sweatshirt and sweat pants and wearing a wool ski cap. "I could walk around, so I just decided to come watch practice," Drew said. "I didn't leave my bed for two days."

Florida authorities say Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew has been accused in a complaint of hitting someone at a St. Augustine restaurant, but that police have not brought criminal charges. St. Augustine police said in a news release Tuesday that the alleged victim filed a misdemeanor battery complaint after a Sunday night altercation. Jones-Drew wasn't taken into police custody. Police spokesman Mark Samson says the department has spoken with Jones-Drew's attorney, and the player has agreed to speak with detectives.

UCLA sophomore running back Maurice Drew turned in a performance worthy of a Heisman Trophy candidate Saturday against Washington, but it almost wasn't good enough for a victory. All Drew did was rush for a school-record 322 yards and equal the Pacific 10 Conference mark of five rushing touchdowns. But despite Drew's effort, UCLA still needed a last-minute defensive stand to win, 37-31, with the Huskies two yards from the potential winning touchdown when the game ended.

Bruin receiver Craig Bragg grew up in the shadow of Spartan Stadium, dreaming that the ovations he could hear from blocks away on Saturdays someday would be for him. Eventually, though, he became so good he didn't even consider San Jose State, instead going to UCLA and becoming the team's top receiver. And, yes, he has heard his share of ovations. Now he's home, and his return should boost Silicon Valley Classic attendance by a couple of hundred friends and relatives. He can't wait to display the form that has resulted in 68 receptions for 994 yards this season, boosting him to fourth on UCLA's career lists with 152 catches and 2,291 yards.

Maurice Drew, who last Saturday set UCLA records with 322 yards rushing and five touchdowns at Washington, hasn't made many mistakes lately. But Drew made a big one when he thought his life would return to normal after his career day. ESPN one day, FSN the next. Throw in radio interviews, and Drew's life has turned into an open book. In fact, we now know something about him that he had kept secret since arriving in Westwood. Drew is a former ballet dancer. "Yeah, it's true," he said.

Maurice Drew scorched the Washington defense last season for touchdown runs of 47, 62, 58, 15 and 37 yards on the way to a school-record 322-yard rushing performance. The number that will stick with the UCLA running back after his less-than-stellar showing Saturday night at the Rose Bowl was considerably smaller but no less sweet. After being held to 32 yards in his first 13 carries, Drew spun into the end zone on a one-yard touchdown run with 1 minute 8 seconds left to give the No.

UCLA running back Maurice Drew had 175 all-purpose yards in Saturday's 30-27 overtime victory over Stanford, moving him into first place in school history with 4,299 yards. Drew broke Gaston Green's mark of 4,283 yards with a 10-yard punt return in the fourth quarter. After the game, rather than talk about the record book, Drew wanted to talk about the Bruins' latest come-from-behind victory and quarterback Drew Olson.

UCLA running back Maurice Drew is expected to declare himself eligible for the NFL draft today at a news conference in Concord, Calif., a family source said Friday. His announcement would be a big blow to the Bruins, who are already losing quarterback Drew Olson and top receiver Marcedes Lewis, both seniors who have completed their athletic eligibility.

The news keeps getting better for Jacksonville Jaguars fans, not to mention fantasy football owners: Maurice Jones-Drew probably will play in the season opener as a third-down back and might play an entire series, according to Coach Mike Mularkey .

Maurice Jones-Drew and Mike Wallace are both essential parts of their teams' offenses. They both just recently ended extended holdouts that saw them miss training camp and all the preseason games. Should they be allowed to just waltz back in like nothing ever happened and resume their spots as starters for Week 1 of the NFL season? Jones-Drew, the former UCLA star and reigning league rushing champion, remained absent for 38 days, even though he had two years left and $9 million owed on his current deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars, before finally showing up on Sunday.

Maurice Jones-Drew is back in camp, ready to work toward regaining his starting position at running back with the Jacksonville Jaguars. While Jaguars fans might hold a grudge with last season's leading rusher in the NFL for his 38-day holdout for a better contract, they should like his attitude now that he's back. “This is the last talk about the whole contract situation,” Jones-Drew said during his Sunday afternoon news conference. “We're going to move forward to football after this.” Music to many people's ears, especially those who drafted Jones-Drew for fantasy football.

Jacksonville Jaguars fans and, more importantly to most, fantasy football players can breathe a sigh of relief: All-Pro running back Maurice Jones-Drew has reported to camp. The NFL's leading rusher last season with 1,606 yards had been a holdout all summer as he sought a new contract, despite the fact he had two years left on the five-year, $31-million contract he signed in 2009. By reporting to camp, Jones-Drew will be eligible to receive his regular-season paychecks, valued at more than $9 million the next two seasons.

Rumors that Maurice Jones-Drew will report to camp this weekend have given Jacksonville Jaguars fans, as well as Fantasy Football owners, something to look forward to this holiday. The multiple-threat running back, who led the NFL in rushing last season with 1,606 yards, has been holding out for a new contract. Jaguars owner Shad Khan took a hard line and refused to renegotiate a five-year, $31-million deal that Jones-Drew signed in 2009. Jaguars Coach Mike Mularkey said that he's heard the rumors of Jones-Drew returning to the team, "but nothing from people that need to tell me its firm.

Jim Irsay, the bombastic owner of the Indianapolis Colts, says his club is ready to make a major trade. And, of course, Maurice Jones-Drew, the disgruntled Jacksonville Jaguars running back, is available. Irsay took to Twitter on Thursday to say the Colts were seriously looking to make a deal, following up that tweet with another about new General Manager Ryan Grigson being willing to gamble and that the owner himself would open his checkbook to get a trade done. Then came a third tweet: TRADE WINDS BLOWING.

Maurice Drew said he's "going to probably be 110%" for the USC game on Saturday at the Coliseum, but the UCLA junior tailback appeared closer to 10% Tuesday after being held out of contact drills in practice. Drew said he was limited as a precaution "because of how my body is feeling," particularly his knee. The 5-foot-8, 205-pounder said he has experienced pain in his knee since the Washington game on Oct. 1.

For the most part, Coach Karl Dorrell got what he expected from UCLA's first spring football scrimmage Saturday. The offense did some good things (mainly running back Maurice Drew) but also made plenty of mistakes (at least 50 yards in penalties along with several dropped passes). The Bruin defense had a better day (at least four sacks and one touchdown interception return), but they also struggled in key areas -- such as tackling.
