Murray apparently sitting out Wednesday practice again; Bryant, Claiborne, Livings looked ready for side work

The Cowboys began their work week for the Steelers game by apparently giving running back DeMarco Murray another Wednesday off from practice. They did the same thing last week, aiming to give him extra rest between games as he continues to see a lot of action after his return from a sprained foot.

Since spending six weeks on the sideline, Murray has gotten 52 touches in two games. He has rushed 44 times for 136 yards and two touchdowns and caught eight passes for 41 yards.

The Cowboys also began practice without nose tackle Jay Ratliff (groin) and safety Charlie Peprah (knee).

Wide receiver Dez Bryant, cornerback Morris Claiborne and guard Nate Livings were dressed for practice but appeared headed for rehab work. Bryant did not have his helmet and is expected to see another hand doctor today. The Cowboys have not designated an injury for Claiborne, but he suffered a cut on his face in a helmet-to-helmet collision on the sideline in Cincinnati on Sunday.

Nose tackle Josh Brent was not seen at practice.
