IRVING (December 20, 2011) -- Cowboys running back Felix Jones missed practice Tuesday because of hamstring tightness. That left the Cowboys with two running backs who weren't even on an NFL roster a few weeks ago.
Sammy Morris, who made his season debut last week, split time at
practice with Chauncey Washington, who signed with the Cowboys
practice squad Nov. 30. Morris was cut at the end of training camp
by New England while Washington was let go by St. Louis in August.
Coach Jason Garrett says he's hopeful that Jones will be able to
practice some this week and be ready for Saturday's game against
If not, Morris is the most logical choice to start since running
backs DeMarco Murray and Phillip Tanner are on injured reserve.
