Jones Out For Dallas; Graham Decision Coming

It looks more and more likely that the Cowboys will give rookie running back DeMarco Murray his first career start Sunday against the Eagles.

Felix Jones was ruled out for the Sunday night clash with an ankle injury. Tashard Choice, who started last week, did not practice on Friday and is listed as questionable. Choice was already on the injury report with a shoulder injury, but a hamstring injury was added on Friday. Choice was limited in practice on Wednesday and Thursday.

Three other players are questionable for the Cowboys: guards Kyle Kosier (foot) and Derrick Dockery (knee) and defensive end Jason Hatcher (calf).

Quarterback Tony Romo (ribs), kicker David Buehler (groin) and punter Mat McBriar (foot) were full participants in Friday's practice and are probable.

The Eagles had full participation from each of their players all week. The following players were listed on the injury report for the Eagles as probable: safety Nate Allen (knee), defensive end Trent Cole (calf), offensive tackle King Dunlap (back), offensive tackle Winston Justice (knee), defensive end Juqua Parker (ankle), offensive tackle Jason Peters (hamstring) and defensive end Darryl Tapp (pectoral).

The only question for the Eagles is whether defensive end Brandon Graham will be activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list prior to Sunday's game. Graham was eligible to return to practice this week. He is not listed on the injury report because he is not currently on the 53-man active roster. If the Eagles want to add him to the roster, they have to make a corresponding roster move by 4 PM on Saturday, head coach Andy Reid said. If Graham is activated, Reid said that he would have a "limited" role at best.

Graham said that if he doesn't play this week he fully expects to be active for the November 7 Bears game.
