Meanwhile DeMarco Murray, who earned the lion’s share of the workload with 601 yards in the four games for which Jones was absent, went for 73 on 25 carries. Head coach Jason Garrett told reporters this week that, more or less, we’d see more of the same moving forward, as he looks to use Jones in situations that play to the Arkansas product’s considerable strengths. “It's probably a combination of both.

Who actually coaches the Dallas Cowboys?
