Stroud was on crutches Thursday with his right lower leg in a boot and seemed to be grimacing with each step.
This will be a huge factor in the game. If Stroud doesn't play, Dallas stands a much better chance of controlling the middle of the line, and protecting Drew Beldsoe.
The Jags MLB Mike Peterson returned to practice today, but they still aren't sure if he'll play.
Also, rookie tight end Marcedes Lewis has been limited in practice and probably can't play.
Injuries are a part of the game, so when they happen to the opposition, you have to take advantage of it. If Stroud and Peterson are limited or don't play, the Jaguars will be severely weakened up the middle on defense.
