(Dallas-AP) -- Troy Aikman will start Sunday when Dallas plays San Francisco.

Aikman says he feels enough time has passed since he suffered a concussion in a season opening loss to Philadelphia. He's missed two games since.

The Henryetta native says he doesn't feel he's putting himself at risk by playing.

Cowboys' owner Jerry Jones says Aikman was evaluated by team trainers after today's practice. Jones says everyone involved in the decision agreed that Aikman could return to game action.

Randall Cunningham has been the Cowboys' starter since Aikman's injury September Third. He threw for 185 yards and two touchdowns in a Monday night win against the Redskins.
