Dallas Cowboys RB Felix Jones fighting through injury

IRVING — With a dislocated shoulder that had yet to fully heal, Cowboys running back Felix Jones overcame pain as he rushed for 115 yards earlier this week in Dallas’ 18-16 victory over Washington last Monday.

This week, he is still feeling the effects of an the injury he aggravated in Monday’s game. But he is determined to play Sunday against Detroit.

“I am able to do what I need to do,” Jones said. “Whether I am feeling sore or not, I am not complaining. I am just happy to be out there.”

Jones, who participated in a full practice Thursday, said he is taking his recovery “day by day” and is looking forward to the upcoming bye week because it will “give me a chance to get healed up a little bit more.”

But for now, the Cowboys hope Jones can continue to breathe life into the Cowboys’ ineffective ground game like he did in the second half on Monday.

“Felix had an outstanding night finding holes and finishing runs,” Garrett said.

It was a performance that Jones plans to replicate.

“Anytime you get a chance to have the ball in your hands,” Jones said, “you’ve got to make the best of it.”
