DMN Chat: Felix suffered thigh bruise in game

[Comment From Guest]
where was felix jones and Bennett yesterday, i thought they were going to be a main focus. I still don't think they are getting Felix enough touches.

David Moore: As Derrick mentioned earlier in the chat, Bennett had a bigger impact than his one reception indicates because of the match-up issues he created. He did mis-fire with Romo on a potential touchdown. Bennett joked about that with Romo after the game, telling him if you have Shaquille O'Neal on the break, do you want to give him a bounce pass or a lob?

Jones had only six carries Sunday and failed to catch a pass. He was a bigger part of the Cowboys game plan, but he suffered a thigh bruise early in the game and it limited his effectiveness. Some of those third downs that put Tashard Choice on the field were designed for Jones.
