IRVING, Texas (AP) -Rookie running back Felix Jones was officially placed on injured reserve by the Dallas Cowboys on Wednesday, ending what had been an extremely productive rookie season.
Dallas signed defensive back Tra Battle off San Diego's practice squad to take his place on the roster and said Battle might play Thursday against Seattle.
The Cowboys had said last week that Jones would be put on IR last week but only made the move this week.
He sustained a torn ligament beneath his left big toe while doing rehabilitation on the left hamstring he hurt Oct. 12. The hamstring is healed, but the team said last week Jones would need surgery on the toe and up to six months to fully recover.
Dallas' first pick in last April's draft, 22nd overall, Jones finishes his rookie season with 266 yards rushing on 30 carries, an 8.9 yard average that includes a 60-yard touchdown run. He also had a 98-yard kickoff return for a score and had four TDs overall.
layed only one game for the Chargers after signing as an undrafted free agent last year, could play on special teams against Seattle.
With safety and special teamer Patrick Watkins again bothered by a neck injury that forced him to miss three games last month, Dallas wanted to add some depth. Watkins was listed as questionable for the game.
Phillips did not offer an update on left guard Kyle Kosier, who will be out Thursday and could miss the rest of the season. He reinjured his right foot Sunday, only the second game he had played since missing six in a row.
Montrae Holland, acquired from Denver at the end of training camp, is expected to start in Kosier's place Thursday. He has appeared in only two games as a lineman for the Cowboys.
Rookie cornerback Mike Jenkins (hamstring) is out against the Seahawks.
