Douglas had eight tackles (six solo) in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Cowboys.
Douglas made his first start of the season Sunday with Jalen Mills (foot) and Sidney Jones (hamstring) inactive. Regardless of Mills' and Jones' health going forward Douglas should be in line for a heavier role moving forward with Ronald Darby now lost for the season with a torn ACL.
Rasul Douglas is preparing to start Sunday against the Cowboys, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
With Jalen Mills still nursing a foot sprain and Sidney Jones (hamstring) also out, Douglas should get his first start of the season on Sunday. The 23-year-old has only seen a meaningful number of snaps in two games this season, in Weeks 6 and 8, and has just two tackles (one solo), an interception, and two passes defensed on the season. He should see plenty of chances to make plays Sunday though as Dallas likely has him pegged as a matchup to exploit.
