The Cowboys have released running back Tashard Choice.
He has been replaced on the roster by second-round draft pick Bruce Carter.
Choice missed practice Friday with a hamstring injury and was questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles.
His release leaves the Cowboys with two healthy running backs -- rookies DeMarco Murray and Phillip Tanner.
Felix Jones will miss his second consecutive game with a high left ankle sprain.
Murray, the team's third-round draft pick, rushed for a team-record 253 yards last week against St. Louis. Tanner had the first carries of his career, picking up 34 yards and scoring a touchdown on six carries against the Rams.
Carter, a linebacker, had been on the non-football-injury list. He is expected to see his first NFL action against the Eagles.
Choice was drafted in 2008. He has fumbled in the past two games and was averaging on 2.7 yards on 28 carries.
After Choice's release, the following statement was posted on his official Twitter account, @tchoice23:
"I just want to say thanks to all the great dallas cowboy fans. My time in Dallas has come to an end and the best is yet come. God bless."
