New, comments

DeMarco Murray sat out practice again today and looks doubtful for Sunday. Jay Ratliff also sat out but is expected to be ready to play, and Dan Connor took his first practice reps in limited action today.

In Wednesday injury news, it looks a little less likely that DeMarco Murray will play on Sunday. He was still out of practice today, and time is running short for him to get ready for Sunday. The Cowboys have previously said that they'll be cautious with Murray's injury, so he'll likely sit out until he is fully healed.

Jay Ratliff was also held out of practice on Wednesday, though the consensus seems to be that that is a precautionary measure. Ratliff did return to the game on a limited basis on Sunday after his injury, and expectations are that he'll take at least some snaps against Philly.

Dan Connor seems to be recovering from his neck stinger. He was limited but did participate. Connor had missed the Atlanta game after suffering a re-aggravation of his injury early in the Giants game.

Dez Bryant and Felix Jones are only listed on the injury report because they were also on it last week. They both played against Atlanta and were full participants.

Phil Costa, Sean Lissemore and safety Matt Johnson were also out with what looks like longer-term injuries.

Kevin Kowalski practiced with the team for the first time this season, and spent most of the session playing center. Kowalski had initially been designated as the backup center before he was derailed by a severe case of ankle tendinitis that eventually required him to undergo surgery and landed him on the PUP list.

The Cowboys' newest acquisition, linebacker Gary Guyton also attended his first Cowboys practice today. Guyton has had extensive experience in a 3-4 defense, playing it int the Patriots' scheme from 2008-2011, during which time he accumulated 32 starts.

The most notable injury news from the Eagles camp is that RT Todd Herremans has been placed on injured reserve after tearing some tendons in his ankle on Monday night against the Saints. That does not help an offensive line already considered one of the worst in the league.
