Cowboys owner Jerry Jones seemed pleased with the play of running backs Tashard Choice and DeMarco Murray, who got their first game action of the preseason Saturday night at Minnesota.
Choice ran three times for 14 yards, but had two strong runs called back by penalties. Murray, the third-round pick, had seven carries for 32 yards and one catch for seven yards.
“Choice ran real well, with authority, and certainly you could see the power of Murray and you could see some of his acceleration,” Jones said. “You actually saw him have the one reception. He’s outstanding with his hands. He can really help us in the passing game as a receiver.”
Jones said he feels good with Choice and Murray behind Felix Jones.
“We’ve got a couple of young ones back there, but I’m certainly comfortable with those guys,” he said.
