The Dallas Cowboys had two of their starters sitting out of practice on Friday in the persons of Zack Martin and Randy Gregory. But they have very different expectations for the game on Sunday.
First, the full injury report.
No Zack Martin for Sunday. Here’s the Cowboys-Colts injury report. pic.twitter.com/f11oyFJoAS— Calvin Watkins (@calvinwatkins) December 14, 2018
Zack Martin has been ruled out for Sunday. Martin re-injured his MCL in the Eagles game and has missed practice all week, Connor Williams will have to fill in for him this week.
Randy Gregory has missed the past couple of practices but is expected to play on Sunday even though he is listed as questionable. He has been tending to a family issue that shouldn’t interfere with him playing on Sunday. Gregory will be a key piece even with his penchant for penalties, the Cowboys will need to pressure Andrew Luck and Gregory has been very hot in that area over the past month.
Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Friday that Randy Gregory has been away from the team the last two practices handling a family issue and nothing related to his battle against addiction. Garrett said he expected Gregory back in town today and he's expected to be available Sunday.— Brandon George (@DMN_George) December 14, 2018
Sean Lee and Tavon Austin continue to participate in practices and have a decent chance of playing this weekend. The Cowboys have labeled them questionable, just like Tyron Smith.
Sean Lee on returning from injury: "If you don't go out and play full speed and hard, you're not going to be any good and you're not going to play anyway. So might as well go out there and let it rip, and it might rip, but that's part of the deal."— Jon Machota (@jonmachota) December 14, 2018
David Irving, Geoff Swaim and Lance Lenoir were all out today. Irving and Swaim have been ruled out while Lenoir is questionable.
The Colts will be without guard Mark Glowinski and T.Y. Hilton is listed as questionable, and even though he hasn’t practiced all week it appears most observers expect him to play. Head coach Frank Reich says he will be a game-time decision. It looks like center Ryan Kelly will return for this game after missing the past few, that’s a big pickup for the Colts.
Per Frank Reich, here's who the Colts have ruled out for Sunday vs. Dallas: Mark Glowinski, Mike Mitchell, Skai Moore.— Zak Keefer (@zkeefer) December 14, 2018
TY Hilton didn't practice all week, is questionable. Team will find out more in next 24 hours.
Ryan Kelly, Mo Alie-Cox + Dontrelle Inman all set to return.
