Free safety Gerald Sensabaugh missed the start of practice again Wednesday, making it likely he's not going to play on Thursday against Miami. Second-year player Barry Church is expected to start in his place.
Sensabaugh suffered a sprained foot last week against Washington, and he hasn't practiced all week. The Cowboys will declare his status for the game later today when the practice report comes out.
Backup quarterback Jon Kitna also missed practice, as did fullback Tony Fiammetta, receiver Miles Austin and cornerback Mike Jenkins. None are expected to play Thursday.
