Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he has been contacted by at least two teams about possibility trading for running back Tashard Choice. But the injury to Felix Jones, who will be out two to four weeks with a high ankle sprain, have forced the Cowboys to take him off the market, Jones said on his radio show on 105.3 The Fan.
“Any time anybody calls you, you give it some thought,” Jones said. “But with the injury to Felix and where he is with his sprained ankle, I’m doubtful that anything will happen there. And, no, I don’t see any other trade possibilities.”
Rookie DeMarco Murray will likely get the bulk of the carries in place of Jones but the Cowboys no longer have the luxury of parting ways with Choice. The need him to share the load with Murray. They also need him as a veteran option to along with Murray and fellow rookie Phillip Tanner, who made the team as an undrafted free agent.
