The Dallas Cowboys were hoping that left tackle Tyron Smith would be available to go against the New Orleans Saints, but it’s not happening. Smith went through pre-game warmups but his stinger issue will keep him out for another game. Cam Fleming will fill in for a second consecutive week.
The Cowboys will have guards Zack Martin and Xavier Su’a-Filo even though both were listed as questionable.
The Cowboys inactives are Smith plus Tavon Austin, David Irving, Geoff Swaim, Sean Lee, Chris Covington and Mike White.
The Saints will be without offensive tackle Terron Armstead.
The Saints had ruled out only one player, with starting left tackle Terron Armstead (pectoral) due to miss his third consecutive game. Jermon Bushrod will start.
New Orleans made receiver Tommylee Lewis a healthy scratch.
The team’s other inactives are receiver Brandon Marshall, linebacker Manti Te’o, center Will Clapp, defensive lineman Mitchell Loewen and defensive end Trey Hendrickson.
Get ready, the game is almost here.
