Cowboys RB Felix Jones Could Be Replaced As Kickoff Returner
The Cowboys will reassess their situation at kick returner after watching Felix Jones fumble the opening kickoff Sunday against the Seahawks. Seattle converted the turnover into a field goal.
It was the sixth lost fumble in Jones' career.
“When you make a play like that, you look hard again at that and what the alternatives are,” Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Monday at Valley Ranch. “... We have a few different guys working at that, and we’ll evaluate that again this week.”
Dwayne Harris had a team-leading eight returns last season, averaging 28.9 yards with a long of 51. Dez Bryant also has returned kicks in his career, including three last season, but the Cowboys have been reluctant to use their starting receiver there after he broke his right fibula on a return against the Colts as a rookie.
