The Dallas Cowboys are as healthy as could possibly be hoped for as this stage in the season. Sure, there have been some guys sent to IR and that’s never good, especially when one is Travis Frederick,but to only have one guys as questionable, and two ruled out att his stage in the season is pretty darn good.

As expected, Tavon Austin and Joe Thomas will not be available this Sunday. Th only other player who may or may not play is Chidobe Awuzie, The Cowboys starting corner is listed as questionable for the game with a hurt ankle, he was limited in all three practices this week.
It looks like we will see the return of Sean Lee on Sunday as he is not listed as questionable and was a full participant in the last two practices. The Cowboys now face the very good problem of finding snaps for Lee, Jaylon Smith and Leighton Vander Esch. Lee added into the mix gives the Cowboys one of the best linebacking corps in the NFL. They will be a hard team to run against.
The Cowboys defensive line also looks to be at full strength this week. Maliek Collins, Randy Gregory, DeMarcus Lawrence and David Irving were all full participants the past two days. The Cowboys defense is as stocked as it has been for a while.
Washington will be without receiver Jamsion Crowder while receiver Paul Richardson and safety Troy Apke are doubtful. Running backs Adrian Peterson and Chris Thompson are both questionable, both were limited in practice this week. Washington has a long list of questionable players with injury that they will have to sort out on Sunday.
