Dallas RB Felix Jones, who has missed the last three games with a high ankle sprain might be ready to return to the Cowboys lineup on Sunday against the Bills. According to the Dallas Morning News, Jones went through a rehab workout Monday and did some cutting off the recovering ankle for the first time. All signs were encouraging and owner Jerry Jones stated that the running back has a chance to return this week. Even if he does it’s expected that he’ll have a reduced role in light of the injury and the emergence of his backup DeMarco Murray. Murray in Jones’ absence has run for 466 yards on 55 carries and is averaging almost 8.5 yards per carry.
