Cowboys | J. Jones wants a complete year in 2006; Barber will see more action too

Sun, 30 Jul 2006 16:24:44 -0700

Rob Phillips, of DallasCowboys.com, reports Dallas Cowboys RB Julius Jones has walked a not-so-thin line between the cusp-of-stardom and injury-prone in his two NFL seasons. A high ankle sprain sidelined Jones for three games and parts of another last season. He appeared to lack his trademark home-run burst when he returned for the last eight games, yet still finished with 993 yards and five touchdowns. "No, no, I'm not doing that this year," Jones said when asked for a statistical prediction this year. "Sixteen, that's my number. I want to play 16 games." Jones still has high expectations for himself. "If you're asking me individually, it's a big year for me," he said. "Coach Parcells likes to see what his players can do in their third year. He gives you three years to prove something, and I've still got something to prove." Parcells knows Jones can change a game's tone with his speed and quickness. Parcells said he wants to increase RB Marion Barber III's role this season, particularly as a third-down weapon, but he isn't sure how he'll balance carries between Jones and Barber yet. Parcells endorses the two-back system, which has become popular in college programs and eventually has seeped into the NFL's offensive framework. Parcells also is hopeful RB Tyson Thompson can become more reliable in his second season. Parcells says he doesn't believe Jones is injury-prone.

Cowboys | Signs Point to Jones Returning

Tue, 08 Nov 2005 17:46:38 -0800

Nick Eatman, of DallasCowboys.com, reports signs seem to indicate Dallas Cowboys RB Julius Jones (ankle) will return to the field for the team's Week 10 game. Those signs not only include his full return to practice, meaning no additional work on the side with trainers or strength coaches, but more importantly, head coach Bill Parcells expecting Jones to be ready as well. "He looks pretty good," said Parcells, who hasn't gone into much detail about Jones' injury either. "It's been three days. He's doing OK." If Jones returns to action Monday night, Nov. 14, it will likely be with rookie RB Marion Barber III cutting into some of his carries. Barber has rushed for 222 yards the last two games. On Tuesday, Nov. 8, Parcells told reporters that he plans on using both Jones and Barber, and even RB Tyson Thompson as well.
