Felix returns in reserve role

Felix Jones got five carries for 18 yards as he returned from a high ankle sprain that sidelined him for four games. He also had one reception for 1 yard. He did not return a kickoff.

Apparently, that was the plan -- to ease him back into the lineup. DeMarco Murray tied his career high with 25 carries for 73 yards and had six catches for 32 yards. His 31 touches were a career high.

“I think we’ll see more of Felix,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said. “I’m not saying I want to see more of Felix. I just think games will call for us having more of him in there, especially in some of the passing game.”

Make Felix the punt and kickoff return specialist. Also move him from the running back position to a wide receiver spot. Either that or trade him before he gets hurt again.

PLEASE!!! Put Felix back on kickoff returns. We aren't getting anything whatsoever from our kick return game. Actually, we aren't getting anything from our kickoff or punt return. It's making for a lot of "LOST" hidden yardage. Meanwhile, our coverage units is mediocre at best. Our only saving grace on special teams is Dan Bailey.

PLEASE, PLEASE!!! At least put Felix back to return kickoffs so that every single drive following a kickoff doesn't start at the 20 or shorter.
