IRVING, Texas -- The Cowboys are not too concerned about Felix Jones’ hamstring injury, which could be part of some poker game late in the season, but this particular injury has bit the club too many times this year.
Wide receiver Miles Austin missed six games because of pulls in both legs. The first injury came in training camp, and he aggravated it at San Francisco. He hurt his right hamstring against Seattle on Nov. 6. Cornerback Mike Jenkins missed four games with a hamstring injury suffered Oct. 30 at Philadelphia.
Wide receiver Laurent Robinson got hurt in his first practice back in September and was cut and brought back. Phillip Tanner is on injured reserve because of a hamstring injury. DeMarco Murray’s season ended because of a fractured ankle, but he showed up to training camp with a hamstring injury that kept him out of most of the preseason.
Tony Fiammetta, Andre Holmes and Dwayne Harris also had hamstring issues.
Maybe Jones’ hamstring injury is minor and not something to be worried about, but given his injury history overall and the hamstring injuries that have happened this season it should give some pause.
