Cowboys RB Felix Jones Misses Practice Again

IRVING (December 21, 2011) -- Cowboys running back Felix Jones isn't at practice again.

Jones, coming off consecutive 100-yard rushing games for the
first time in his four NFL seasons, is dealing with hamstring
tightness. He wasn't on the field at the start of practice
Wednesday after missing Tuesday's session.

Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones expressed
confidence Felix Jones will play against the Eagles on Saturday and
says the team is being cautious since they are so thin at running
back.

Rookie running backs DeMarco Murray and Phillip Tanner are
already on injured reserve. That leaves the Cowboys with Sammy
Morris, a 12-year veteran, and Chauncey Washington on the practice
squad.
