Of the several preseason hunches I got that led me to reach for certain players, Reaching for Felix Jones in the 4th round appears to have been my biggest mistake. The injury concerns are already popping up, and his production wasn't that great before then. (Thankfully Beanie Wells and Hightower have been panning out so far.)
separated right shoulder. he got it wrapped up and played through it. they may shut him down for a bit too. I see they're contemplating shutting Austin down till after week 5 bye due to him re-aggravating his hammy. It's looking ugly for the boys.

Murray or Choice for the add here? I can't say that I watch much Cowboys football but I've been reading that Choice is horrible in blitz pickup and thus won't see as many snaps as Murray. Anyone have anymore/better insight on the situation?
I don't like either of them right now. Choice doesn't seem to be playing well but he also says he does not feel 100%. He could easily be overlapped by Murray but just as easily take his spot back later on down the line.
I don't think we'll have any solid info until tomorrow.
I believe this is all we get for now:
[quote=Rotoworld] Cowboys owner/GM Jerry Jones did not express serious concern over Felix Jones' shoulder aggravation Monday night. Felix appeared to re-injure his previously separated shoulder deep in the fourth quarter. "We know what to do with that, and we’ll do it," Jerry said. "He’ll have to work through that and hopefully it won’t be lingering and hopefully get him in there against Detroit." With the bye looming in Week 5, it's certainly possible Jones takes a week off. Tashard Choice and DeMarco Murray would split the load in that case. [/quote]
FWIW, career game. The guy has talent. The question is durability.
