Though it’s unknown whether rookie DeMarco Murray’s 253-yard effort from last weekend will move him up from No. 3 on the depth chart, he’ll continue to be the lead dog on Sunday night in Philly, when the Cowboys face the Eagles.
Starter Felix Jones continues to be hampered by a high ankle sprain, and Tashard Choice is expected to be questionable with a dislocated shoulder suffered last week against the Rams.
According to the team’s official website, Murray (pictured) and Phillip Tanner may be the only two tailbacks who’ll play this week.
The Cowboys don’t have another running back who could be elevated from the practice squad. Barring the highly unlikely decision to sign a guy off the street (Brian Westbrook, anyone?), it will be Murray and Tanner on Sunday night.
