IRVING, Texas -- The Cowboys moved running back Lance Dunbar
to the active roster on Monday with the goal of putting him on special teams.
Coach Jason Garrett said Dunbar can return kicks and plays a gunner role on the special teams unit.
Jones has struggled at this spot, averaging just 21.5 yards per return, 24th in the NFL. He's only returned three kicks the last two games mainly because the kickers have sent them to deep into the end zone. In the Chicago game, Robbie Gould
sent seven of his kicks into the end zone, five were touchbacks.
That's not Jones' fault, yet, his 236 kick return yards and a lack of speed raises concerns about his availability on the unit.
"If you evaluate it there are a lot of areas where we can get better," Garrett said. "We can certainly block it better, you like to think the returner can make some things happen as well. It's not been a strength for us. We got to do a better job of getting our offense a better drive start. We'll look at that and continue to look at that."
Jones isn't the only man in the end zone waiting on kicks. Dwayne Harris
and Phillip Tanner
are the off returners and have yet to return a kick.
