With the big game coming up this weekend against our division rivals, the Philadelphia Eagles, let's check in with the injury situation. First up, the missing. Felix Jones didn't practice today with hamstring issues. The Cowboys believe he'll play, but Sammy Morris is the next man up if the Cat can't go. Danny McCray is resting his ankle, and Kevin Ogletree has a knee issue from yesterday's practice, but expresses hope he'll play.

DeMarcus Ware and Jay Ratliff returned to practice in a limited capacity. Also limited in practice but likely to play are Mike Jenkins, Laurent Robinson and Kyle Kosier. Most of that is being careful with vets who have bumps and bruises. In Ware's case, it will mean new equipment.

Ware suffered the stinger in the Dec. 11 loss to the New York Giants and aggravated it early in last week’s win at Tampa Bay. He did not play in the second half and did not practice on Tuesday. With Wednesday’s practice focusing on the nickel package, Ware, whose 16 sacks lead the Cowboys, felt it was necessary to return to work even if he was limited.

The most important change Ware could make will be with his equipment. He was fitted for a stiffer neck roll on Wednesday to make sure his head does not get jerked backward and aggravate the injury. He wore his normal neck roll against the Buccaneers.
