Dallas RB Felix Jones will miss week 7, perhaps longer

Fort-Worth Star Telegram - [Full Article]

Running back Felix Jones sprained an ankle, which will keep him out at least one game and likely longer.

Jerry Jones said he is "concerned" about his starting running back's availability for the short term. It is a high-ankle sprain.

Without Jones, the Cowboys turned to DeMarco Murray, who finished with 32 yards on 10 carries.

Murray said he is ready to assume a bigger role with Felix Jones on the sideline.

Fantasy Impact: 

Murray seems to be next in line to get carries and Tashard Choice will likely be in the mix, too. The Dallas running game hasn't been impressive this year but can be a factor in the passing game. Choice has three catches last week while Murray had one. Murray looks to be the guy to target off the wire if you need help, but it's likely he won't rank much higher than a borderline RB2.
