Cowboys @ Eagles: Injury Report Gives Clues

New, comments

A quick peek at the injury report could be instructive as to the complexion of the season-finale for Dallas when they travel to Philadelphia.The Eagles didn't practice on Wednesday since they had a game Tuesday night, but the NFL people did an estimation of what their injury report would have looked like.

For Dallas, Jon Kitna's abdominal muscle is still causing pain, and he didn't practice Wednesday. In fact, Jason Garrett says he could miss practice all week, but still could play. I'm not so sure, you hear that all the time but coaches rarely do it. So the smart money is on Stephen McGee as the quarterback on Sunday.

Bradie James took his regular day off, and Keith Brooking was limited. Expect both to play as usual.

The wide receiver position continues to be hard hit by injury. Sam Hurd has a head injury that kept him out of practice and leaves his status uncertain for Sunday. Jesse Holley also sat out practice, but he's played the last couple of weeks and should be good to go. Roy Williams was limited in practice with the groin injury, but expect him to play.

Sean Lee had full-participation and should be ready to play.

Check out the full reports below, including the estimation of the Eagles, who would have had some stars sitting out according to the NFL.
