Dallas Cowboys running back Felix Jones was limited again in practice on Thursday because of a bruised knee. Jones is expected to play on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons in place of the injured DeMarco Murray, who has missed the last two games with a sprained foot.
Jones ran for just 19 yards in last weekend's loss to the New York Giants but drew praise on Thursday from the team. Executive vice president Stephen Jones said (via The Fort Worth Star-Telegram) he gives the running back a lot of credit for playing when he's not 100 percent. Phillip Tanner and Lance Dunbar are the only other healthy running backs on the roster.
Fantasy Impact: Jones has not been overly effective in the two weeks he's started in place of Murray, but fantasy owners counting on him this weekend should be able to use him against Atlanta.
Jones is a low-end No. 2/No.3 fantasy running back this week but has value as the starter.
