Dallas Cowboys And The NFL:
IRVING – With Felix Jones missing practice Tuesday with what Cowboys coach Jason Garrett termed a “tight” hamstring, 34-year-old Jay graduate Sammy Morris is gearing up for a bigger role – possibly even a start – in Saturday’s crucial NFC East game with the Philadelphia Eagles.
“I signed up for it, so I’m ready for it,” Morris said.
It’s been a whirlwind two weeks for the 11-year veteran. After getting cut by New England just before the season started, Morris spent the first 3½ months of the season at his home in Boston. He got off the couch last week after a season-ending injury to DeMarco Murray forced the Cowboys to shore up their depth behind the fragile Jones.
Now he could be in the starting lineup in one of the biggest games of the season.
“I’m just looking forward to doing my part to help the team win, to make a run at the playoffs,” Morris said. “It’s a crucial time of time of the year. We control our own destiny and that’s pretty much what I’m looking forward to
