Ryan Cook, Mike Jenkins, DeMarco Murray miss practice
By Calvin Watkins
IRVING, Texas -- Before Cowboys practice Friday, coach Jason Garrett said starting running back DeMarco Murray was doubtful for Sunday's game against Cleveland.
Well, Murray didn't practice Friday at Valley Ranch and he most likely will miss his fifth consecutive game with a sprained foot.
"He is doing more and more each day," Garrett said. "Ran a little bit more yesterday, so that’s a positive thing."
Cornerback Mike Jenkins (back) and center Ryan Cook (knee) also missed practice.
Cook is being replaced by Mackenzy Bernadeau, and Derrick Dockery moves from the bench to the starting right guard spot. With Jenkins out, it allows the Cowboys to give Vince Agnew more snaps in some passing situations.
Tight end John Phillips (ankle) and fullback Lawrence Vickers (knee) were expected to practice. Defensive end Sean Lissemore (ankle), center Phil Costa (ankle) and safety Matt Johnson (hamstring) didn't practice.
