Dallas Morning News - [Full Article]

DeMarco Murray is expected to continue to serve as the primary tailback for the Dallas Cowboys, but will he be the starter this week against the Washington Redskins? That's a question yet to be answered.

Felix Jones, who was the team's lead ball carrier at the outset of the season, is expected to return to action after missing the last four games while recovering from a left-ankle sprain he suffered in the Cowboys' 20-16 loss at New England on Oct. 16.

While Jones was sidelined, Murray burst on the scene and revitalized the Cowboys' inconsistent ground attack. Now that he's back, the scope of Jones' role is expected to be reduced. But don't be surprised if he gets a start for old times' sake.

Fantasy Impact: 

This might be something to worry about if the man coaching on the other side of the sideline ran the Cowboys. But unlike Mike Shanahan, Jason Garrett knows he has a good thing going with Murray and DeMarco will be the one compiling big numbers, not Jones.
