Cowboys’ running back Felix Jones did not take part in Monday morning practice. The reason was to rest an injured toe that shortened his rookie season. But he said he would be back later in the day.

That injury made him be put on injured reserve and ended his season. However, he has been still considered to be the best choice to juice up the offense because of the dazzling plays he made in six games last year.
