The Dallas Cowboys were without wide receiver Dez Bryant and
running back DeMarco Murray during Thursday’s practice, while running back
Felix Jones was limited.
Bryant continues to be hampered by a sore hip that kept him
out of practice, but the receiver did say that he expects to play against the
Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. He’s caught 41 passes for 488 yards and two
touchdowns this season.
Murray was able to shed his walking boot, but he hasn’t
returned to practice as he continues to recover from a sprained foot. Dallas is
being cautious with the running back, who said that he’ll have to wait and see
if he’ll be able to suit up Sunday.
If Murray is unable to go this weekend, Jones could get a
majority of the carries once again if he’s healthy enough to play. He was
limited yesterday due to his bruised knee and hurt shoulder that he sustained
during last weekend’s contest against the New York Giants.
