IRVING — The Dallas Cowboys are expecting to be without running back DeMarco Murray for Sunday's game.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says it "looks obvious" that Murray won't play at Carolina because of his sprained left foot.

Speaking on his weekly radio show Tuesday on KRLD-FM, the team's flagship station, Jones said the team is encouraged that the sprain wasn't more serious than it was. Murray had an MRI on Monday.

Murray got hurt in Sunday's 31-29 loss at Baltimore. He missed the final three games of his rookie season last year because of a broken right ankle.

Felix Jones is expected to start in Murray's place.

Murray has run for 330 yards and one touchdown for Dallas (2-3).
