Felix Jones Has Disappeared With Murray's Return

Dec 26, 2012 11:21 AM

Felix Jones has been phased out of the Dallas Cowboys' offense as DeMarco Murray has returned from a sprained left foot.

Jones has touched the ball just 12 times since Murray's return.

“Felix has been dealing with a lot of different injuries over the course of the year, and he’s gotten healthier and healthier as the season has worn on,” Jason Garrett said. “But just the combination has been right to get DeMarco those chances, and we didn’t have that many plays in the ballgame… DeMarco just has been in those situations and we feel good about that, but we also feel good about what Felix has done for us, so it’s not a knock on what Felix Jones has or hasn’t done.”

Garrett is in his second full season as head coach.

I know our guys play hard for him. I don’t believe anybody has refuted that. No one wants to win more games than Jason. I know he’s disappointed that we haven’t won more games, but at the same time, we do have a winning record right now. We’re in the hunt.”

Dez Bryant Avoids Answering Question About Best Under-25 WR

Dec 8, 2012 12:20 PM

A.J. Green has established himself as one of the NFL's best two or three wide receivers over the past two seasons.

Dez Bryant was expected to enter that realm, but has been inconsistent until the past four games.

The Cowboys will meet the Bengals on Sunday.

“I don’t want to answer that question,” Bryant said when asked if Green is the best under-25 WR in the NFL. “He’s nice, I’ll give you that. He’s good. He’s real good. He’s real talented, very explosive, makes plays, clutch.”

Bryant also ranks among the NFL’s top 10 in catches (71), receiving yards (978) and touchdown receptions (eight). 

“It ain’t about proving,” Bryant said. “I don’t want to prove myself to nobody. I just want people to already know this is what it is.”
