As the Dallas Cowboys get ready to play the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday afternoon, we check in on the final injury report
For the Cowboys, the report doesn't really hold any surprises. Dez Bryant and Randy Gregory are both out and will continue to be for the near future. Gregory should be back much sooner than Bryant, but even his return is likely a couple of weeks away. The Cowboys will look to Terrance Williams and Cole Beasley to step up in Bryant's absence, and the guys a little further down on the roster at wide receiver will also need to contribute. Along the defensive line, Jeremy Mincey will carry the load in the absence of Gregory and the suspended Greg Hardy, with DeMarcus Lawrence holding down the other edge. Rookie Ryan Russell is likely to get the call this week to contribute, we'll see what the youngster has got after playing well in preseason games.
Guard Ronald Leary is doubtful, and while the Cowboys won't make a final call on him until sometime this weekend, all signs point to him missing the game. Mackenzy Bernadeau will probably be the replacement, but it will be interesting to see if Dallas gives rookie La'el Collins any reps in the game.
James Hanna is also questionable for the game.
On the Eagles side they are amazingly healthy.
OUT WR Dez Bryant (foot), DE Randy Gregory (ankle)
DOUBTFUL G Ronald Leary (groin)

PROBABLE QB Tony Romo (back), WR Lucky Whitehead (not injury related)
