Jones Misses Another Practice; Likely Out

It's starting to look more and more as if rookie DeMarco Murray will make his starting debut Sunday night on the big stage against the Eagles.

Starter Felix Jones missed another practice Thursday at Cowboys Stadium because of a high-ankle sprain, although he was able to get some conditioning work done with a strength coach. However, Murray is primed to start, not only because of his 253-yard record-breaking performance last Sunday, but the fact Tashard Choice is banged up with a shoulder injury as well.

Choice was limited on Wednesday but was participating more during Thursday's practice.

Jones suffered the ankle injury against New England on Oct. 16 and didn't play the entire second half.

Jones is the only player on the 53-man roster not at practice Thursday, although players such as Choice, Kyle Kosier, Derrick Dockery and Barry Church have been limited this week. Defensive end Jason Hatcher is at full participation after missing five weeks with a strained calf injury.
