Dallas LB Sims joins Lee on sideline vs. Eagles

Dallas linebacker Ernie Sims is joining Sean Lee on the sideline

for the Cowboys’ third straight playoffs-or-bust finale against an

NFC East rival.

Sims was inactive for Sunday night’s game against Philadelphia

with a groin injury. Sims is missing his second straight game, and

Lee is out for a third consecutive game with a sprained neck.

Tony Romo is inactive for Dallas after undergoing back surgery

Friday.

Eagles safety Earl Wolff (knee) was inactive, joining fellow

backup safety Colt Anderson (knee) and backup center Julian

Vandervelde (back). Anderson and Vandervelde had already been

declared out.
