Injury Update: Felix Jones To Have MRI

Several reports coming in this morning about Felix Jones’ knee.

Adam Schefter posted this on twitter:

Jones told Werder the RB was unable to loosen his left knee after suffering a knee strain and the feeling now is that he might need an MRI.

Dallas Morning News’ Todd Archer is reporting that Felix Jones will have an MRI:

After suffering a strained knee on his 40-yard run in the third quarter, Felix Jones will undergo an MRI today at Valley Ranch.

It is standard fare for something like this and it’s the benefit of having an MRI facility on campus, so to speak.

Jones was fitted for a brace during the game and missed the next three plays of what turned out to be a field-goal drive. He returned for the next two plays of the following series – a pass to Roy Williams and a 10-yard run by Tashard Choice out of the Razorback formation – but did not get another carry.

Jones (eight carries, 94 yards) limped off the field following a 40-yard run that led to a Cowboys field goal. He put on a new knee brace and returned for two plays on the next series, then spent the rest of the game walking the sidelines.

Cowboys head coach Wade Phillips said Jones would be re-evaluated on Tuesday.

Pray for good news, but it’s not looking good. Hopefully Marion Barber will be 100% this week.

Rockin’ the NFL

Dallas Cowboys rockers plus one, Free Reign, will be featured on FOX this weekend during NFL games.

As posted by Rob Phillips on the Cowboys website,

The Cowboys’ heavy metal band, Free Reign — featuring offensive linemen Marc Colombo, Leonard Davis, Cory Procter and talented guitarist Justin Chapman — will provide a soundtrack of sorts during Sunday’s season opener (noon, CT). The band’s debut song “Rise Up” will premiere throughout the NFL on Fox broadcast.Free Reign’s debut album “Tragedy” will be released Nov. 17 via Riot Entertainment/Dismanic/ADA Music.

ROCK ON! – Two of my favorite things at the same time, rock music and football!

I guess it’s a good thing the Cowboys didn’t break up the band and cut Procter as predicted by many last weekend… or is it?

Cowboys Make Moves for 75 Man Deadline

Watch out for several moves today around the league as the 75-man roster deadline looms.

The Cowboys have already made their transactions.

Rob Phillips reports,

The Cowboys trimmed their preseason roster to an NFL-mandated 75 players on Tuesday by releasing rookie WR Julian Hawkins, placing rookie LB Brandon Williams (torn ACL) on injured reserve and placing rookie OL Robert Brewster (torn pectoral muscle) on the physically unable to perform list.

Nothing really unexpected or controversial there.


September 1 — Roster cutdown to maximum of 75 players.

September 5 — Roster cutdown to maximum of 53 players.
