The running game for the Dallas Cowboys is stuck in neutral and now and Felix Jones could be out up to a month after being injured in Sunday’s loss at New England.

Jones suffered a high ankle sprain, according to David Moore of the Dallas Morning News, and will be out two to four weeks. The Cowboys just came off their bye week, so it’s not like he’ll have an off week to rest up.

Jones has been dealing with a dislocated shoulder, and now that injury should get time to heal while he rests the ankle. Rookie DeMarco Murray is expected to leapfrog Tashard Choice on the depth chart and become the starter.
