The unnerving injury news just keeps coming for Dallas.
Cowboys running back Felix Jones will undergo an MRI today after it was revealed that he played most of Sunday’s 27-24 victory over the 49ers with what’s thought to be a separated shoulder.
According to owner and general manager Jerry Jones, the Cowboys’ starter played most of the game with a harness on the shoulder. Felix Jones suffered the injury in the first quarter of the overtime win, and finished with 25 yards on nine carries.
Rookie DeMarco Murray and Tashard Choice saw a greater role in the running game after Jones was injured. Murray was in for most of the team’s final drive of regulation, though Jones was used intermittently through the fourth quarter.
Luckily for Dallas, the team wasn’t forced to test Jones or the others following Dan Bailey’s game-tying field goal as time expired. Tony Romo hit Jesse Holley for a 77-yard completion on the team’s first play from scrimmage in overtime, setting up a quick game-winning field goal from Bailey.
"Our guys hung in there," Jerry said, per the Dallas Morning News. "It wasn't pretty in the offensive line and we couldn't run the ball very well."
