Barber held out with quadriceps injury

Dallas Morning News - [Full Article]

After being limited during the week in practice with a left quadriceps injury, Marion Barber was not active, allowing Felix Jones to make the first start of his career.

On Monday afternoon, Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said the team would be "conservative" with Barber's injury after seeing him struggle late last season when he attempted to play with a dislocated toe.

Barber had only 15 yards on 13 carries in the last three games of the 2008 season. With Jones and Tashard Choice, the Cowboys did not see the need to risk Barber to more injury with the bulk of the season to play.
