Running back DeMarco Murray is not practicing because of an illness. He is one of several players out of Wednesday’s practice.
Quarterback Tony Romo (back/ribs/ankle) also is sitting out as expected.
Offensive tackle Doug Free (fractured foot) will not play this week. The Cowboys are adding offensive tackle Tony Hills as a backup, releasing defensive lineman Lavar Edwards to make room.
Linebacker Bruce Carter (thigh), linebacker Rolando McClain (groin/personal matter) and defensive end Anthony Spencer (knee) also are missing practice.
