As I pointed out on September 29, we need a workhorse every-down running back and Felix Jones, who I referred to as Mr. Glass in that post only proved what I said all along.
Jones has been placed in a walking boot this week and is expected to be out anywhere from two to four weeks according to David Moore of the Dallas Morning News.
Jones suffered a high ankle sprain in the second quarter of the team’s loss to New England and didn’t return.
Jones has fought through a dislocated shoulder to stay on the field this season. He won’t be able to do that with this injury.
Jones will miss the St. Louis and Philadelphia games at a minimum meaning he won’t return to the field until November.
We’ll save a drumstick and some pecan pie for you, Felix.
