The injury-riddled offensive line will also feature Demetress Bell at left tackle and King Dunlap at right tackle to go with C Dallas Reynolds and LG Evan Mathis. Mathis is the one who was on the offensive line at the end of last season.

Other inactives: defensive ends Vinny Curry and Phillip Hunt, quarterback Trent Edwards, wide receiver Mardy Gilyard and guard Nate Menkin.

Hunt, a native of Fort Worth, Texas, was deactivated for the first time this season. His father, also named Phillip, is a huge Cowboys fan. He showed up for the Eagles' game at Dallas last season wearing a DeMarcus Ware jersey.

He was inactive to make room for defensive tackle Mike Patterson and defensive end Darryl Tapp. Tapp missed last Monday's lost to New Orleans to be with his wife, Tiffany, who gave birth to the couple's daughter, Taylor Nicole, on Tuesday.

As a side note, former Eagles linebacker Ernie Sims is starting for the Cowboys today in place of Dan Connor.
