Felix Jones Injury Update: Cowboys RB Medically Cleared For Training Camp

Felix Jones is going to make it to Dallas Cowboys training camp in enough time to try to win back his starting job, as ESPN Dallas' Calvin Watkins reports that Jones has been medically cleared to practice.

Jones underwent shoulder surgery shortly after the season and it forced him to miss all of the team's offseason workouts while he recovered. Watkins reports that Jones will be available to practice with the full squad July 30 in Oxnard, Calif. Jones has only played one full season (2010) since becoming a first-round pick int he 2008 draft.

It was supposed to be his breakout year in 2011, but the his lack of productivity and battle with the injured shoulder gave way for DeMarco Murray to emerge as the Cowboys' marquee running back.
