ARLINGTON, Texas (105.3 THE FAN/AP) -Cowboys safety Jeff Heath is inactive Thursday after breaking his right thumb in last weekend’s win over the New York Giants. He was listed as questionable after having surgery Tuesday.
Philadelphia linebacker Emmanuel Acho is active for its game against Dallas after being limited in practice all week by a groin injury.
Rookie Marcus Smith took most of the reps as the backup to Casey Matthews. Acho has seen plenty of action since DeMeco Ryans was lost for the season to a torn Achilles tendon.
Dallas defensive tackle Josh Brent is inactive for the second time since the end of a 10-game suspension for his intoxication manslaughter conviction. He hasn’t played since Dec. 2, 2012, six days before the drunken-driving crash that killed teammate Jerry Brown.
Cowboys inactives include: Dekoda Watson, Tony Hills, Donald Hawkins, Dustin Vaughan, Tyler Patmon
Eagles inactives include: QB Nick Foles, CB Carmichael, DB Jaylen Watkins, C Vandervelde, OL Kelly, WR Maehl and DE Taylor Hart
