Jerry Jones on The Fan 105.3 said he doesn't want to go down the road of thinking Felix Jones is an injury waiting to happen every time he steps on the field. He hopes the second-year back gets back on the field soon because he's, well, really good.
So good that Jerry said the Cowboys planned to give Felix 25 to 30 touches in the Carolina game. Felix left in the third quarter with eight rushes. He's never had more than 10 touches from scrimmage in his nine career games with the Cowboys.
Again, here's Jerry:
"Well, he had such an outstanding record regarding injury in such a positive way during his collegiate career. One of the things we observed and noted when we drafted him was his durability so it has been surprising, but I want to reserve that kind of thinking until we have some more time here. I guess that's what I want to do because I don't want to think the other. So we'll just leave it at that, but there's no question that his durability can be a big factor for us because you give him the ball; and we were going to have him touch the ball 25-30 times the other night. So he will be a factor in the future and let's hope that's not an issue with him."
