The Cowboys and Eagles... Sunday Night football. Before we get to football, we have to get to inactive list for both teams. Both teams are pretty banged up and desperately needing a victory after a Washington win earlier today.
Cowboys’ inactives, officially: Mike White, Tavon Austin, Joe Thomas, Sean Lee, Connor Williams, David Irving, Taco Charlton #cowboyswire— David Helman (@HelmanDC) November 11, 2018
This is an ugly list for the Dallas Cowboys. You could argue that four or five of the Cowboys starters will not be active tonight for what some would consider a “must win” game. With Sean Lee out, his backup Joe Thomas is also still out working back from an injury suffered earlier in the year. Starting left guard, Connor Williams (knee) is also out after getting a minor knee scope last week. Defensive lineman Taco Charlton (shoulder) and David Irving (ankle) are both absent.

CB Sidney Jones
CB Jalen Mills
QB Nate Sudfeld
RB Darren Sproles
T Matt Pryor
S Deiondre’ Hall
T Lane Johnson
This list isn’t much better for the division rival Philadelphia Eagles. Starting cornerbacks Sidney Jones and Jalen Mills will be inactive tonight, leaving an already struggling group without two of it’s biggest contributors. Another big name for the Eagles is Lane Johnson, who is one of the best right tackles in the league. The Eagles will also be without their veteran running back Darren Sproles who was slated to make his return this week, before re-injuring his hamstring in practice earlier in the week.
This is a huge game for both teams who are still competing for the NFC East title. Both teams are pretty banged up, so it will be interesting to see how the teams play with a lot of their starters unable to play. These games seem to always come down to coaching, so all eyes will be on Jason Garrett and Scott Linehan, as the offense is hoping to bounce back in a must win game.
