RENTON, Wash. -- Seattle running back Julius Jones will start on the road against Dallas in the Thanksgiving Day game, four days after being benched.
Coach Mike Holmgren says he expects Jones to be motivated to
play against his former team. Jones was dumped by Dallas last
season before he became a free agent.
This season, Jones has 637 yards rushing and two touchdowns in
11 games, including nine starts. Jones was a starter while Maurice
Morris missed three games with a sprained knee early in the season.

Morris has 278 yards rushing in eight games, including two
