Dallas Cowboys running back Felix Jones has a separated shoulder, according to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen. There is still indication of how much time Jones might miss, but the Cowboys will be watching his injury very closely. Jones carried the ball 9 times and caught a single pass in the Cowboys’ overtime win at San Francisco.
Jones left in the first quarter, holding his right arm in pain. Dallas trainers wrapped his arm, and he returned to the field for a few snaps. Last week, Jones rushed for 44 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries.
Jones’ injury was one of several for the Cowboys today. Wide receiver Miles Austin pulled a hamstring on his third touchdown catch, and the team is concerned about his availability, per Mortensen. Tony Romo’s fractured rib made the most headlines. It was announced that he would not return before he came back in the third quarter.
