--QB Tony Romo (back) didn't practice Wednesday is unlikely to play against the Eagles Sunday. The Cowboys have yet to rule him out, treating him with an epidural shot in hopes of getting him on the field on game day. He has not been cleared by the doctors and the Cowboys will be deliberate in their decision making. Romo has a herniated disc in his back and possibly need surgery.

--LB Sean Lee (neck) is unlikely to play against the Eagles, meaning he will be sidelined in a winner take all battle for the NFC East title and the playoffs for the second straight year.

--WR Dwayne Harris returned to practice Wednesday after missing the last two games with a hamstring injury. He said he will play against the Eagles Sunday, returning to his role as the primary kickoff and punt returner. The Cowboys backed up Harris' promises with a roster move on Wednesday when the released return specialist Michael Spurlock. Harris has been the team's primary kickoff and punt returner all season. Spurlock was signed last week to fill the void because receivers Cole Beasley and Terrance Williams had struggled in those roles in Harris' absence.

--WR Dez Bryant was added to the injury report Wednesday when he was limited in practice by a back injury. The Cowboys don't think is anything serious and he is expected to play on Sunday.

--OL Peter Konz (neck) fully participated in practice on Wednesday.

--LB Ernie Sims (groin) did not practice and very doubtful for Sunday's game against the Eagle.

--LB DeVonte Holloman will start in the middle for the second straight week. It will also be the second time in his life he has ever started a game a middle linebacker dating back to high school. Holloman had six tackles against the Redskins last Sunday.

--CB Mo Claiborne practiced Wednesday for the first time in a month and plans to play in the season finale against the Eagles. He will return his role as the nickel cornerback.
