Cowboys Expect To Have RB Murray

After missing the past six games with a foot sprain, the Cowboys expect to have starting running back DeMarco Murray back in the lineup Sunday night.

Murray was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable, but Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said on his weekly radio show on KRLD that "it looks like we'll have him."

"The key day was (Thursday), he came back better than (Wednesday), which was his first day out and usually that's a leveling off or setback day," Jones said.

Felix Jones, who has started for the injured Murray, is also questionable with a knee injury. He was a limited participant on Thursday and Friday.

Three players are definitely out for the Cowboys - slot cornerback Orlando Scandrick (hand), center Phil Costa (ankle) and defensive lineman Ben Bass (ankle).

Two key players are unlikely to play for Dallas. One of them is All-Pro nose tackle Jay Ratliff, who did not practice all week due to a groin injury. Reserve safety Charlie Peprah is also doubtful with a foot injury suffered in practice during the week.

In addition to Murray and Jones, wide receiver Miles Austin is questionable with a hip injury he incurred against the Redskins on Thanksgiving. Center Ryan Cook is questionable with a knee injury, but is expected to play with Costa out. Offensive tackle Tyron Smith is also questionable, but should play despite an ankle injury.
