Felix Jones doubtful for Eagles game, look for DeMarco Murray to get his first start

 

Look for rookie running back DeMarco Murray to follow up his record setting rushing performance with his first career start against the Eagles on Sunday.

Starting running back Felix Jones, who missed the Rams game with a high ankle sprain, is doubtful for the Eagles game. Team trainers have all but ruled Jones out saying the injury will likely take closer to four weeks to heal.

Murray said he doesn't care about starting but its clear he will be the lead back during Jones' absence if not beyond.

Coach Jason Garrett said Murray deserves more opportunities following the 253-yard effort against the Rams. He broke Emmitt Smith's single game rushing record and Tony Dorsett's rookie single game rushing record.

Jones was a situational Back in college
and that is the role he should have with us. DM give us a quick and bigger back who is better suited to be the big dog and let Felix come in when required. Tanner should be 3 and Choice should be adding "would you like fries with that" to his resume

I think Murray is better choice than Jones. Jones really suck and choice is not a good runner at all. Please give Murray a chance to help Dallas get our running game back on track.

Yes Felix Jones suck...choice suck

have they cut Choice yet
