ARLINGTON (AP)  Felix Jones is doing it again, getting into open space and shimmying his way into wider, more open spaces.

Through two preseason games, Jones is averaging 8.6 yards every time he touches the ball. In 11 tries, he’s had runs of 22, 18 and 11 yards, plus a 16-yard burst on a screen.

Having anointed him as their featured running back, the Dallas Cowboys are thrilled to see it.

They also know this is August, and his body is as fresh as it’s going to be.

What they really hope to see is whether Jones can do it in the fourth quarter, after handling the ball about 20 times. And, if so, whether he can do it in December, after several months of that kind of workload.
