Cowboys HC Jason Garrett said that he still wants to get Felix Jones touches in games and will mix him in when he can, though DeMarco Murray will continue to receive the bulk of the workload. Garrett said the way he uses Jones in games is decided by a combination of his game plan going in and an in-game feel for the best time to call his number.
'It's probably a combination of both. Felix is a guy who we really like. He's been such a good football player for us over the last few years," Garrett said. "He's a dynamic player, a space player but also a guy who can run between the tackles. he can run and he can catch it and we want to get him some opportunities. at the same time, DeMarco has been playing very well, so we have a plan going in and certainly we adjust those plans as the game unfolds."
This is great news for Murray owners. Jones has proven he's not physically capable of staying healthy when given starter's touches and his best fit is as a third-down, change-of-pace back.
