DALLAS (105.3 THE FAN) – On Sunday rookie Demarco Murray and Tashard Choice will split RB duties against the St. Louis Rams due to Felix Jones being out with a high ankle sprain he suffered in the game against New England said Jerry Jones.
“We’ve shown that we’ve split the carries and, in this circumstance, that’s very appropriate since DeMarco is still very early on in his repetitions, his time that he’s sorted through the blocking,” said the Cowboys owner/CEO on his weekly show on 105.3 The Fan.
“What happened to us last week is we did get, what I call ‘big-boyed’ and they really did put a lot of pressure on the interior of our line and when they saw it working they kept it coming and we had to really adjust for that and we got a lot of plays that were behind the line of scrimmage. But I do expect us to adjust for that.”
