Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has surpassed Peyton Manning in the overall lead for Pro Bowl voting.

Vick has 729,838 online votes to Manning's 691,146. Manning led in the previous report issued by the league.

Vick said the voting is "a credit to everything I've tried to accomplish, on and off the field," since returning to the NFL last season after going to prison."Just working as hard as I can to change things around, be a part of the solution, not the problem. I've changed my life. It goes to show anybody can do it.

"It was an unfortunate situation. Things happened, I wish I could go back and change it all. I wish I could take it all back but I can't. The only thing I can do is just move forward."

The Cowboys were without three defensive starters and two key reserves at practice today, ESPNDallas.com reported.

Inside linebackers Bradie James (knee) and Keith Brooking (foot) and strong safety Gerald Sensabaugh (quadriceps) did not practice. Reserve inside linebacker Sean Lee (shoulder) and nickel back Orlando Scandrick (concussion) also were out.

Running back Marion Barber, who did not play against Indianapolis because of a strained left calf, did not practice and is not expected to play.
