Patriots-Cowboys Preview

IRVING, Texas (AP) -- Patriots running back Laurence Maroney missed his third straight game Sunday because of a groin injury, and Sammy Morris started in his place against the Dallas Cowboys.

Cowboys cornerback Anthony Henry, the NFL leader with four interceptions, was out for the second straight game with a right high ankle sprain. Jacques Reeves started in his place.

Maroney was inactive even after the second-year back practiced some during the week. Morris, coming off consecutive 100-yard games while Maroney was out, was the starter for the second straight game after running for 102 yards last week against Cleveland in his first start for the Patriots.

Maroney had 252 yards on 54 carries in his first three games before being sidelined. In college at Minnesota, Maroney split carries with Cowboys running back Marion Barber.
