After missing the past four games with a high ankle sprain, the Dallas Cowboys expect running back Felix Jones to return for the team’s match-up with the Washington Redskins on Sunday. Some have worried that Jones’ return could slow down the production of rookie DeMarco Murray, who emerged as a star in Jones’ absence, but Tony Romo believes that Jones’ presence will only help the team’s offense.
"There won't be anything that’s going to be a downside in any way," Romo said, per ESPN Dallas. "Felix is only going to add to this offense. Felix is explosive and we’ll be able to use him in a lot of good ways. It's going to be good."
Murray himself dismissed the notion that a rivalry would develop between he and Jones, once the latter returned to the field, and we're inclined to believe him. That said, we hope Jones' return doesn't do anything to impede Murray's rhythm, with which he's stacked up 601 rushing yards over the team's last four games.
