Cowboys WR Dez Bryant will start vs. Panthers

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.
