The Dallas Cowboys will be without starting running back DeMarco Murray this week against the Carolina Panthers, due to a foot injury that had him out of practice all week. With Murray officially out, the starting role will now go to Felix Jones.

Linebacker Anthony Spencer is still questionable due to his pectoral injury, he has been slowly been improving day by day. During practice this week, he was limited each day.

A new name also popped up on Friday's injury report for the Cowboys: wide receiver Dez Bryant, who did not practice due to a groin injury. Officially for Sunday's game, Bryant is questionable. Reports out of Dallas are saying that Bryant has just been sore, and not practicing on Friday had nothing to do with a new injury from practice on Wednesday or Thursday.

Backup safety Matt Johnson also popped up on Friday's injury report with a hamstring injury, and he is out for Sunday's game.

Dez Bryant WR Groin - - DNP Questionable
