Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant (hip) was one of eight players who did not practice Wednesday. He was injured at the end of the Giants' game when he fell in the end zone on a catch that originally was ruled a touchdown but reversed on replay.
The Cowboys continue to battle injuries at the running back position. DeMarco Murray has not practiced since Oct. 13 in the team's walk-through the day before the Ravens game when he sprained his left foot. His backup, Felix Jones, was limited in Wednesday's practice with a bruised knee. He was injured against the Panthers but started and played against the Giants. Jones likely will have to start again this week as the Cowboys are using caution with Murray.
Linebacker Dan Connor (neck), center Phil Costa (ankle), defensive end Jason Hatcher (shin), safety Matt Johnson (hamstring), defensive lineman Sean Lissemore (ankle) and receiver Kevin Ogletree (hamstring) also missed Wednesday's practice.
Costa still is wearing a walking boot.
