CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP)

Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant is active and will start against Carolina after being held out of practice Friday with a groin injury.

Running back DeMarco Murray is inactive. That means Felix Jones gets the start for the Cowboys (2-3) against the league's 23rd-ranked run defense.

Dallas' other inactives include safety Matt Johnson, defensive tackle Sean Lissemore, punter Chris Jones, linebacker Kyle Wilber, guard David Arkin and receiver Cole Beasley.

Carolina (1-4) will be without a pair of starters in linebacker Jon Beason and cornerback Chris Gamble. Luke Kuechly makes his second straight start at middle linebacker, while Captain Munnerlyn starts in place of Gamble.

Also inactive for Carolina are quarterback Jimmy Clausen, center Thomas Austin, returner Joe Adams, defensive tackle Frank Kearse and cornerback D.J. Campbell.
