Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray was active Sunday night against Philadelphia after missing six games with a sprained right foot, and Eagles quarterback Michael Vick will miss his third straight game with a concussion.
Murray participated in practice this past week for the first time since injuring the foot Oct. 14 at Baltimore. The Cowboys have rushed for more than 100 yards just once without Murray and are last in the league in rushing offense.
As expected, Vick was inactive along with running back LeSean McCoy, who also has a concussion.
Cowboys nose tackle Jay Ratliff (groin) was inactive, while center Ryan Cook (knee) was active and expected to start. Cook's return means Mackenzy Bernadeau will be back at guard.

Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray (foot) is expected to play Sunday night versus Philadelphia, but Adam Schefter is reporting that the Cowboys will limit his workload.Fantasy Spin:Murray hasn't played since Oct. 14 because of sprained foot so this shouldn't be a surprise to fantasy owners. Murray and Felix Jones should share the carries until Murray is completely recovered.
The Cowboys move past the Eagles tonight, and move to 6-6 and somehow still in the playoff hunt. First thing, I’d like to mention is that we’re going to see some people go over board with this win, and think we’re back on track. We are not, the defense has slowly reverted back to its 2011 self, in some part due to injuries. Let’s quell the playoff talk people. There’s still...

Tony Romo and his Dallas Cowboys certainly have had a tough time this season beating teams that suck in the 2012 season. They barley hung on to beat the Cleveland Browns and last night the Philadelphia Eagles gave them almost more than they could deal with a back up quarterback playing. The Cowboys did hold on to get the win over the Eagles but it took a solid effort by their defense...
Tony Romo has set a Dallas Cowboys record with his 166th touchdown pass, breaking a tie with Hall of Famer and three-time Super Bowl champion Troy Aikman.
Romo's record-breaking pass was a 23-yard touchdown to Dez Bryant in the third quarter of Sunday night's game against Philadelphia. It came in Romo's 89th career start.
Aikman started 165 games for the Cowboys from...
Following a thrilling win at home against Philadelphia the Dallas Cowboys are back in the playoff hunt. The brightest performance from Sunday nights game came from wide receiver Dez Bryant who showcased nationally his ability to be a difference maker.
Bryant has been in the news multiple times this season, almost none of them for good reasons. Still, Cowboy fans are hoping that there...
ARLINGTON, Texas It hasn't been the case often this season, but the Cowboys found a way to play their best football in the fourth quarter Sunday night. They scored 21 points during that 15-minute stretch and outlasted the division rival Philadelphia Eagles 38-33.
Here are my five thoughts on the Cowboys improving to 6-6 on the year.
1.) The Cowboys have not traditionally played...
Most simulations have the Cowboys winning by about a touchdown, or perhaps more.
It’s been a long nine days since the Cowboys ruined our Thanksgiving. Dallas returns to the field tomorrow night to face the Philadelphia Eagles, who have not won since September.
The simulations do not think the game will be close. Notwithstanding the Thanksgiving performance, the sims have the Cowboys...
The Dallas Cowboys are still scratching at an outside shot at the playoffs right now. Any shot of them making the playoffs will definitely hinge on the health of running back DeMarco Murray, however.
ESPN Dallas is reporting that Murray looked good this week and will be cleared to play versus the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night.
“It looks like that, we’ll see how well...

The Cowboys stand at 6-6 with four tough games (Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, New Orleans and Washington) remaining. Another season left out of even making the playoffs is highly likely. One of the primary reasons for the disappointing season is a pedestrian ground game. It is trendy to say the NFL is all about passing, but a balanced offense and a stingy defense still results...
