Player Updates: Who’s In, Who’s Out

Felix Jones will have toe surgery to repair a ligament and has been confirmed out for the season.

This is tragic news. Felix amazed us with his stunning returns and rushes, and was definitely considered Rookie of the Year before he was injured. Although he wasn’t the starter he was definitely a FINE asset to the team. He will be missed terribly, especially on special teams.

Felix will join Sam Hurd, Mat McBriar, and Roy Williams on the Injured Reserve. Can you imagine how different things would be if those players were available?

Isaiah Stanback will have surgery on his shoulder after the season.

Isaiah who? We’ve been waiting for this guy to get well since he was drafted, maybe someday we will see what he’s really worth. The word is we will see Stanback on Sunday as a return guy.

Jason Witten (ribs) was limited in Wednesday’s practice.

Witten the Warrior… what can you say. The team just wants to let him get as much rest as possible before Sunday and doesn’t need him roughed up during practice. Nothing to worry about, he will start.

Miles Austin is having problems with his knee that benched him during preseason. He could miss 2-4 more weeks.

Ouch! That might hurt. But thankfully we have T.O. and Roy. We’ve got options. Hurry back Austin!

Tony Romo is good to go but will likely continue to wear protective covering on his injured pinky.

At times, the bandages caused bad passes but I’ll take a wobbly Romo over anyone else any day of the week (we learned that while he was out). I think he will look better and continue to improve. I ain’t worried!  

Bobby Carpenter missed last Sunday with a strained groin, but returned to full practice and should be back this Sunday.

No comment. This guy doesn’t impress me at all.

Terrell Owens was out sick on Wednesday.

Umm.. hopefully he’s feeling better and it’s nothing to worry about.


If it isn’t one thing its another. This year has really been trying on the Cowboys. If we can overcome this we can do anything. Pretty much everything that could go wrong, has gone wrong. But we still hold a 6-4 record and nothing is impossible as far as I’m concerned.
