RB Snaps - Game 14 - Redskins

A first for the Cowboys in 2010 was seen on Sunday versus the Redskins - Tashard Choice had the majority of the workload and the majority of the touches. Now, of course, Felix Jones suffered a shin contusion at some point of the contest, so it is very likely that this had nothing to do with anything but Felix's availability.

Choice had 40 snaps (20 each half) and Jones had 28 (21/7). Touches were 19 for Choice and 14 for Jones. Production, however, was in Felix's favor: 117 yards for Jones, 84 for Choice.

We will continue to monitor this with Marion Barber claiming he is fit to return on Saturday night. I am not a fan of this idea of a "3-Back attack", but I also understand that this organization is what it is. And what it is appears to be a team that has no idea how to slowly move veterans out of the way when it is clear that the time has come.

In case this is your first time to check these numbers, this is all about snaps on the field - not touches or run plays. This is merely intended to see who is on the field and who is on the sideline for the Cowboys offense.
