Former NFL running back Felix Jones used to be a member of the Dallas Cowboys. Today, he worked out to be a member of the New York Giants.

According to the reports, it is a standard bye-week workout. Yet, his workout does make it seem like the Giants have concerns over Rashad Jennings’ knee.

Jones was not the only running back to be worked out. The team also worked out free agent Alex Green yesterday.

The 27-year-old hopes to play this season, but he hasn’t been able to secure a deal. Last year, in his only season with the Pittsburgh Steelers, he had 48 carries for a 184 yards.

“I know something is going to happen, I have a gut feeling,” Jones said on July 1st.

Prior to signing a one-year deal with the Steelers, Jones spent his first five years with the Dallas Cowboys. In the past three years, his carries and numbers have drastically declined since his career-high 185 carries for 800 rushing yards in 2010.

Green, who was released on August 30th by the New York Jets, is a 26-year-old, who last played for the Jets in 2013, where he played a career-high 12 games. He had 11 rushes for 35 yards.

Before handing with the Jets, he played two years with the Green Bay Packers after being a third round pick by the team in 2011. He would only play in 16 games with the Packers, and had 138 carries for 475 yards.

He has a career mark of 3.42 yards per carry in his 149 career carries.
