Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray did not practice this week and he will not play against the Eagles. Lance Dunbar also has an injured hamstring and will join the first-string back on the sidelines.
The Cowboys are down to Joseph Randle as their running back. He took the first-team reps with the team in practice this week and should see the vast majority of the carries. Last week, he caught two balls for 15 yards to go with 11 carries for 17 yards. Those are hardly impressive numbers, but 13 touches on a productive offense is a good sign.
As for Murray, he has an MCL sprain and could miss some time. Dunbar doesn't have enough of a role to be considered here, so the Cowboys will likely just keep him out until he's 100 percent.
Fantasy impact: The road gets a little easier for Joseph Randle against the Eagles. Philly gives up a ton of yards and since they run so many plays, the Cowboys should have more possessions. He also should see a lot of the snaps on passing downs, which could really help buoy his value. He's a sneaky flex play this week and could have a coming-out party.
