Four Starters Miss Practice For Cowboys


The Eagles returned to practice Wednesday to prepare for their Sunday night showdown with the Cowboys.

All 53 members of the Eagles' active roster were at practice at the NovaCare Complex on Wednesday afternoon including recent additions linebacker Dannell Ellerbe and tackle Will Beatty.

Cornerback Ronald Darby (ankle), tight end Zach Ertz (hamstring), and safety Jaylen Watkins (hamstring) were the only players on the Eagles' injury report but were full participants. Darby stated he was uncertain of what his role will be, but expects to make his return against the Cowboys.

"I knew (Eagles-Cowboys) was a big rivalry. I'm from Washington, D.C.," Darby said in the locker room Wednesday.

For Dallas, Pro Bowl tackle Tyron Smith (back/groin), wide receiver Dez Bryant (knee), linebacker Sean Lee (hamstring), and kicker Dan Bailey (right groin) did not practice. Starting safety Jeff Heath was held out from activities with a concussion while defensive tackle Maliek Collins (foot) and tight end Geoff Swaim (knee) were limited.
