Cowboys Wll Put Felix Jones On IR

By  | 

IRVING -- Injured Dallas Cowboys running back Felix Jones is done for the season.

The team today announced the rookie will be placed on injured
reserve because of a big left toe injury sustained while doing
rehab after hurting his left hamstring Oct. 12.

Jones returned to practice on a limited basis at midweek. But
the Cowboys say that was to evaluate his ability to play with the
toe injury.

It's the first time the team confirmed Jones had a setback
during rehab for the hamstring, which has healed.

The Cowboys decided Jones is out for the season -- based on that
practice and an evaluation by a foot and ankle specialist who
reviewed the MRI of the player's foot.

Jones rushed for 266 yards and three touchdowns in his six
games. He also returned 16 kickoffs for a 27.1-yard average,
including a 98-yard touchdown.
