If George's presence allows Jones to return kicks and avoid high numbers of carries in games where the Cowboys are grinding it out on the ground, then I think the team is ultimately better for it.
If Lee continues to have a great camp as I have read he is having and J Jones is the real deal, then trading George to Miami in the last week of preseason becomes , IMO, a very likely possibility.
Eddie wants to play and it might be beneficial to him and something he might want. Dallas would not want to let a young guy like Lee, if special, go to keep a guy who has a couple of years left.
Probably won't happen but I would see that happening before we let Lee go in the above scenario.
Oh, and to answer the question Jones starts and E George is the third down back or the guy that comes in when Jones needs a rest when we are running the ball 40 times a game.
Bp said in the PC that he wanted to run the ball 36 times each game and when they did they were 9-0. Look for more of the same this year.
