Cowboys’ running back Felix Jones returned to practice Wednesday for the first time since suffering a high ankle sprain in the team’s October 16 game against the New England Patriots, Rainer Sabin of the Dallas Morning News reports today.
Jones’ role once he returns to the lineup is unclear at this point, because, in the four games he’s missed since sustaining the injury, rookie DeMarco Murray has emerged as a potential star--he rushed for 601 yards and two touchdowns in this span, and set a new franchise record for rushing yards in a game.
In other injury news, Sean Lee (dislocated wrist) has a new cast on his left hand and wrist--one that, unlike the club-like cast we saw last week, leaves Lee’s fingers exposed, presumably so he can more easily grasp the jerseys of opposing players. Lee, who played and had four tackles against Buffalo, said that he struggled to tackle ball carriers from the side due to the cast.
