The Dallas Cowboys have signed running backs Sammy Morris and Mana Silva to help replace the injured DeMarco Murray.

Morris, a fifth-round pick in 2000, has not played a snap in the NFL this season. He spent the past four years with the New England Patriots.
Silva has spent time on a pair of practice squads this season after being an undrafted free agent out of Hawaii this year.
