Jon Kitna threw before practice, but he said he is feeling no better than he did since he strained a left oblique muscle in the second quarter of last week’s game.
“Quite a bit of pain when I was throwing,” said Kitna, who wore street clothes out to practice. “It just didn’t feel good, didn’t feel right. It didn’t feel like I would give us the best chance to win today. That’s the way I look at it.”
But Kitna isn’t ruling himself out. He is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Eagles and will make the trip to Philadelphia, interim coach Jason Garrett said.
“Forty-eight hours is a long time really, so we’ll see,” Kitna said.
Stephen McGee is expected to make his first career start, while Chris Greisen likely will be his backup. The Cowboys have until 3 p.m. today to make a roster move, and with receiver Sam Hurd (headaches) ruled out of Sunday’s game, the team could move Hurd to injured reserve.
