Jones, Pool, Holmes Finally Pass Conditioning Test

Felix Jones, Brodney Pool and Andre Holmes will be on the field when practices resume on Friday



    The three Dallas Cowboys who failed their conditioning test will be back on the field with the rest of the team when they reconvene on Friday, after passing the test as a group on Wednesday--three days after the initial test was given. The three offending Cowboys who couldn’t pass on Sunday, for whatever reason, were Felix Jones, Brodney Pool and Andre Holmes.

    With the conditioning test in the rearview, the three can now focus on preparing for the 2012 season in earnest--for Jones, this means providing a change of pace from DeMarco Murray in the backfield and, unless something changes, returning kickoffs.

    Pool, meanwhile, will battle for the safety spot opposite Gerald Sensabaugh, and Holmes will be pushing for a roster spot as a receiver/contributor on special teams.

    “We all pulled together, the three of us that were running it,” said Pool, who came over from the Jets as a free agent this offseason, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “We did a good job and knocked it out.”
