Jerry Jones not worried about Felix Jones, who Garrett says has to get himself ready to play 'at level he is capable of'

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he is not worried about running back Felix Jones at all.

“That’s a ridiculous thought,” he said on his radio show on KRLD-FM on Tuesday. “I’m not worried about him at all. From what I’ve seen out there, he’s got a chance to have a big year for us.”

Jones had shoulder surgery in the offseason, repairing an injury that slowed him down last year and made it painful for him to raise his arm, limiting his pass-catching ability.

But he said last week that he is 100 percent healthy and ready for the season. But he has had a lackluster start in the two preseason games. Last week against San Diego, he dropped a pass. He has five carries for 14  yards and one catch for three yards.

“I think he is getting himself ready to play,” coach Jason Garrett said. “He has done some good things in practice and in games, but he has to continue over the next couple weeks to get himself ready to play against the Giants at the level he is capable of playing at.”
