Cowboys coach Jason Garrett has been quick to praise Felix Jones’ play if warranted.
But Thursday, he also praised the running back’s will to compete through injury while the Cowboys have had to do without DeMarco Murray for six weeks.
“He’s done a really good job fighting through a couple of these injuries, knowing the situation we have with DeMarco being out for a little while,” Garrett said at his press conference at Valley Ranch. “He’s just kind of stepped up, has gotten himself ready to play in the ballgames, done a good job when we’ve handed it to him, a good job when we’ve thrown it to him.”
Jones has hurt a knee in each of the past two games. He didn’t practice Wednesday, but Garrett said the veteran was feeling better Thursday morning.
