Cowboys' Jones breaks shoulder blade

Just saw Parcells' news conference on ESPN. Julius Jones broke his shoulder blade and is gone at least 6-8 weeks. Their run game is getting weaker and weaker. LET'S CRUSH VINNY!!!!!

did I hear Parcells right? Or was he actually saying he didn't know when Jones was and wasn't in the game? That sounded really odd to me

No. There's a "breaking news" (no pun intended) crawl saying that Jones broke his shoulder:
Cowboys.com

Parcells didn't know about the injury during the game, apparently.

Here's a guy Ive mentioned that has opened eyes..starting in TC, thoughout the preseason and now the first game via a clip from the Ft Worth Star Telegram:

RUNNING GAME

Lee out to prove he can contribute

By Clarence E. Hill Jr.

Star-Telegram Staff Writer


IRVING - It may one day be remembered as running back ReShard Lee's drive to significance.

It started with a 62-yard kickoff return, followed by four consecutive carries to the end zone and a touchdown dance that was as much about being thankful for a long-awaited opportunity as it was about paying homage to his beloved fraternity of Omega Psi Phi.

Lee's performance against the Minnesota Vikings, arguably one of the few bright spots in a 35-17 loss, earned him a chance to get a few more opportunities to run the ball in the Cowboys' running back-by-committee approach.

Cowboys coach Bill Parcells said the first-year player from Middle Tennessee State has been coming on since training camp and will get a bigger role, starting Sunday against the Cleveland Browns.

Eddie George will likely remain the starter, and although rookie second-round pick Julius Jones could be ready to return after sitting out the season opener against the Vikings, Parcells said Lee has earned the right to carry the ball, too.

"He's starting to improve as a player," Parcells said. "He made a couple of plays in the game last week and in the preseason. Hopefully, we can use him in a role. It's not going to be a full-time role. He's not ready for that."

Lee gave hope to what had been a plodding rushing attack and provided fodder for Monday morning quarterbacks across Fort Worth-Dallas to second-guess Parcells. After the kickoff return, Lee rushed four consecutive times for 31 yards, capping the drive with a 7-yard burst to the end zone. He didn't play again until the waning moments of the fourth quarter because the Cowboys went to a spread offense with Richie Anderson as the lone running back.

But don't count Lee among Parcells' second-guessers.

"They gave me the ball, I had my opportunity, and I didn't let them down," said Lee, who played last week with a bruised shoulder and a broken thumb. "With coach Parcells, you have to prove yourself on more than one occasion. I just want to prove that I can make plays consistently every week."



This kid can play...just something to put in the back of your head for next weeks game

I havent heard the PC but the way JJ played, he was a non factor...hence the cynnical comments from BP

Lee is gonna get his chances...and I feel very good about them

Offensive penalties are killing us...we averaging almost 430 yards a game but only 17 PPG.

If we stop the penalties the scoreboard is going to be run up like a pinball machine
