The Cowboys do expect Felix Jones to play on Christmas Eve against the Eagles, but with only Sammy Morris – who has only been playing football this year for two weeks – behind him, they decided to add a little depth by signing Chauncey Washington off of their practice squad.
Washington has been bouncing around practice squads and getting a few carries here and there since 2008. He was also with the Cowboys in 2009 and was added to the practice squad three weeks ago after depth issues at running back started to crop up. Guard Brandon Loper was released to make room on the active roster. Loper had not made a 45-man game day roster yet this season.
