    The Dallas Cowboys will get receiver/return man Dwayne Harris back for Sunday’s win-and-in matchup with the Philadelphia Eagles at AT&T Stadium, after being held out of the past two games with a hamstring injury.

    With Harris out, Cole Beasley took over return duties in Week 15’s matchup with the Packers. The week after that, the team signed veteran Micheal Spurlock to handle returns against the Redskins.

    "When you have a number of different injuries you have to make some hard decisions about who can stay on the roster and dealing with those things," said head coach Jason Garrett, per ESPN Dallas. "We’re hopeful that Dwayne can practice [Wednesday] and can continue to get better as the week goes on."

    Harris currently ranks fifth in the league with 30.5 yards per kickoff return, and the Eagles have allowed more kickoff return yards than all but four teams in the league.

    "Everybody runs different schemes; what Philadelphia does, a lot of people don’t do," Harris said. "Just watching doesn’t help you but you have to be out there on the field just fully I guess to do what you can do."
