    Jason Garrett has not announced who will start at running back during Felix Jones' absence.

    "Different runners will get different opportunities here in Felix' absence,'' Garrett said. "We have to be prepared for each of those guys to be able to do anything, play on first and second down and also third down.

    It better be. I really don't want to see choice on the field anymore than is necessary.

    Sort of random question, but is using the word "runner" for a running back a northeastern thing? Norm Hitzges has done that forever and it's always sort of bugged me. To me, a runner is something in baseball, or something a woman gets in her panty hose, not a position on a football field.

    I always thought that was quirky Norm's pet phrase, but maybe that's common up there.

    I think Murray will see a lot of playing time. He also brings in good blocking ability as a RB knowing when to stay in on blitz pickups and when to release

    He managed to play Murray and Choice some when Felix was healthy, maybe that means we'll get a little bit of Tanner with Felix out. DeMarco Murray needs to be starting though. I like that kid he runs hard.
