Safety Kenny Phillips also missed practice because of a sprained knee suffered against the Packers, but he believes he has a good chance to be on the field in Cowboys Stadium.
"Honestly, I really do," Phillips said. "Like I said, I haven't been told otherwise, so until they tell me, I'm practicing and preparing like I'm going to play."
Phillips said he tested the knee by doing some work on the sideline as the team practiced.
"It felt pretty good," he said. "Nothing is torn, which is a great thing, so just like I say, (it's) kind of day-to-day."
Although he's trying to stay positive, Phillips knows exactly how he'll feel if he has to miss the showdown with Dallas.
"The frustration will set in, because I definitely want to be out there," Phillips said. "Especially because this time of the season is when you play important games. I just want to be a part of it. No one ever wants to miss a game. I definitely don't."
