Jones to start against Cowboys

Posted: Updated:

RENTON, Wash. (AP) - Former Cowboys running back Julius Jones
will start for the Seattle Seahawks on Thanksgiving Day at Dallas.
      Coach Mike Holmgren made the announcement yesterday. Jones'
promotion ahead of Maurice Morris comes after he was benched and
replaced by Morris against the Washington Redskins last Sunday at
Qwest Field. Morris gave the Seahawks their first 100-yard rushing
day since Week 3 in a 20-17 loss to the Redskins.
      Holmgren says Jones' motivation over being dumped by Dallas last
season before he became a free agent is the primary reason he is
choosing to start him this week. In 11 games in Seattle, Jones has
637 yards rushing, with two touchdowns.
