Cowboys running back Felix Jones junked a protective brace on his left knee for the Thanksgiving game against Oakland and produced his best performance since September.
Jones had seven runs for 68 yards. That inlcluded a 46-yard touchdown run. Jones had not had a run of 10-plus yards in his previous three games. His last run of 20-plus yards came in the third game of the season, a win against Carolina. Jones sprained a ligament in the left knee during that game and had lacked explosiveness on his runs.
``I'm very excited to have my health again and be able to play,'' Jones said. ``It was very frustrating.''
