DeMarco Murray, Ernie Sims return to practice

IRVING, Texas -- Keeping with the same schedule as last week, starting running back DeMarco Murray (foot) returned to practice Thursday, though in a limited fashion.

Murray doesn't practice Wednesdays but does work the next two days.

Inside linebacker Ernie Sims also returned to the practice field for the first time since suffering a concussion in the first half of Dallas' victory over Pittsburgh on Sunday. Sims passed a concussion test Thursday and has to take another one Friday.

Both Murray and Sims were limited.

Wide receiver Dez Bryant (finger) and outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware (elbow) were limited in practice but each is expected to play in Sunday's game against New Orleans.

Morris Claiborne (concussion) and Charlie Peprah (foot) were full participants in practice.

The Cowboys moved practice from Valley Ranch to Highland Park High School's indoor facility because of the windy conditions in the Dallas area.
