JERRY JONES’ LONG ROAD TO PRO FOOTBALL HALL OF FAME
Veterans rest as team turns attention to Jones’ Hall of Fame induction.
Now that the Dallas Cowboys have taken care of business in the Hall of Fame game, they’re going to hang around for a couple of days.
Why not? The boss is about to get a gold jacket.
With no stars and few starters on the field Thursday night, the Cowboys edged the Arizona Cardinals 20-18. The idea, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said, was to get the young players lots of action, win the game and then get ready for owner Jerry Jones’ induction Saturday night.
So the team took Friday off, will practice in Cleveland on Saturday and then will tour the hall before the evening ceremonies.
Rico Gathers, catching a 26-yard TD pass Thursday against Arizona, also had a diving reception in the Cowboys’ win.
