It’s week 17 and the Cowboys travel to New York to face the Giants. With the NFC East already locked up, and ailing players looking to get healthy before the postseason, the Cowboys lineup will look different today. Let’s see who will be active and who will be inactive for both teams.
Cowboys inactives: Mike White, Ezekiel Elliott, Chris Covington, Zack Martin, Tyron Smith, David Irving, Tyrone Crawford #cowboyswire— David Helman (@HelmanDC) December 30, 2018
Reminder, the inactive list only looks like this because the Cowboys have really nothing to play for today, other than bragging rights. With that being said, Ezekiel Elliott, Tyron Smith, and Zack Martin all desperately needed a recovery week. Tyrone Crawford is also inactive today after suffering a scary injury last week against the Buccaneers.
The Giants are also banged up, and have multiple big names on their inactive list. Odell Beckham, Jr. and Alec Ogletree highlight the list of inactives for the Giants, but key contributors Rhett Ellison, Mario Edwards, and Russell Shepherd are also inactive today for the Giants.
While this game holds little value in the grand scheme of things, the Cowboys would love to come out today and get a win on the road, against a division rival, especially with three of their best players wearing street clothes. One more game before they really matter, let’s close the season out with a “W”!
