The Cowboys kept Felix Jones on the bench for most of Saturday’s loss to the Eagles so that he wouldn’t be on the bench against the Giants in the season finale.
The team expects Jones to start and doesn’t think he’ll be limited at all despite his hamstring injury.
“We think by limiting Felix to about 8 or 10 plays the other night, we’ve got him in good shape,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said on KTCK-AM via the Dallas Morning News.
The Giants rush defense has been a weakness all year. Jones looked pretty spry last week when he played and the Cowboys are quietly a top-ten rushing team in yards-per-carry. We’d expect to see a lot of him on Sunday night.
