Oh, 'Boy: Jones says 'it's notable' he didn't check on Choice

As owner, president and general manager of the Dallas Cowboys, Jerry Jones is involved more in the day-to-day activities of his team than many others in the NFL.

So, it's a bit curious that Jones admittedly didn't bother to look into the status of injured running back Tashard Choice following the Cowboys' Week 7 rout of the St. Louis Rams.

The Dallas Morning News reported Monday that Choice suffered a subluxation of his right shoulder -- an injury in which the joint popped out before popping back in place -- but Jones apparently had other more pressing matters on his mind after the 34-7 victory.

"I really don't know any details," Jones told The Morning News. "It's notable I didn't ask."

Certainly a message being delivered by Jones.

Choice has been a disappointment this season, rushing for just 75 yards on 27 carries with two fumbles. In light of DeMarco Murray's franchise-record-setting, 253-yard performance, Choice's role appears to be in jeopardy, especially when Felix Jones returns from an ankle injury.

Choice said he expects to play Sunday night against the Philadelphia Eagles, but he might want to check with his boss to see if he'll be a part of the Cowboys' game plan.
