Down to a trio of running backs consisting of Felix Jones, a 12-year veteran who thought his career was over just a few weeks ago in Sammy Morris and a recent practice squad call-up in Chauncey Washington, the Cowboys have been understandably cautious with Jones since he suffered a hamstring injury two weeks ago in the victory over Tampa Bay.
Once the Giants’ victory over the Jets went final last week, early on in the Cowboys’ loss to the Eagles, Jones was pulled from that game. He finished with four carries for 24 yards, but, with the limited action, left plenty of question surrounding his health going into the win-or-else game against the Giants.
Jones doesn’t talk a lot, at least not to the media, but what he did say this week was good news for Cowboys fans. “I’m feeling good,” Jones said, per the Dallas Morning News.
If Jones wasn’t able to go, or was limited, the bulk of the carries would go to Morris, who has looked surprisingly good in his time with Dallas. Obviously though, given the circumstances, if there’s a chance Jones can play, we’d imagine he’ll play, as Dallas fights for a playoff berth Sunday night.
