Cowboys are suffering from heavy injuries as they head into their game against the undefeated Falcons.
Eight Dallas Cowboys missed practice due to injuries on Wednesday, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. The most high-profile name of the group was receiver Dez Bryant. Bryant suffered a hip injury in the final seconds of Sunday's loss to the New York Giants. Other injured Cowboys included center Phil Costa (ankle), defensive end Jason Hatcher (shin), linebacker Dan Connor (neck), safety Matt Johnson (hamstring), defensive lineman Sean Lissemore (ankle) and receiver Kevin Ogletree (hamstring).
In addition to those players who sat out Wednesday, running back Felix Jones was limited in practice. Jones is part of a stable of injured backs that also includes starter DeMarco Murray, who hasn't practiced since Oct. 13. Jones started in place of Murray against New York, and will likely start again against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. He was limited Wednesday with a bruised knee.
The game between the Cowboys and Falcons kicks off at 8:20 p.m. EST from the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.
