ARLINGTON, Texas (AP)

Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray started Sunday night against Philadelphia after missing six games with a sprained right foot, and Eagles quarterback Michael Vick missed his third straight game with a concussion.

Murray participated in practice this past week for the first time since injuring the foot Oct. 14 at Baltimore. He rushed for 14 yards on Dallas' first offensive play.

The Cowboys rushed for more than 100 yards just once without Murray and began the game last in the league in rushing offense.

As expected, Vick was inactive along with running back LeSean McCoy, who also has a concussion.

Cowboys nose tackle Jay Ratliff (groin) was inactive, while center Ryan Cook (knee) was active and started.
