Official injury report: Choice has a hamstring injury

It wasn't Tashard Choice's shoulder injury but a hamstring injury that kept him out of practice Friday. He underwent an MRI and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles. That 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.

Punter Mat McBriar (left foot) fully participated in practice and is listed as probable for Sunday.

Defensive end Jason Hatcher (calf), right guard Kyle Kosier (foot) and offensive guard Derrick Dockery (knee) are questionable. Hatcher and Kosier will play. Dockery, who has been out since being injured in Week 2, could be used as the backup guard.

@wg32: Murray and Tanner are better that both Felix and Taschard. Mark my words. Felix will be the number 2 man if he comes back unless Tanner really shines in the next game or two. That would make Felix the number 3 man and definitely expendable.

Choice's only real injury is to his pride. He knows he is now the fourth string running back once Felix comes back. He is embarassed, not hurt.

That's perfect. Murray and Tanner are both better than Choice.

Tanner has the potential to be a very good player for the Cowboys.
