The final injury report for the Cowboys and the Giants.

It’s Friday of a game week, which brings us the final injury report before the teams suit up. This week’s contest is on Sunday between the Cowboys and the Giants, let’s see where the injury situation stands.

Before the season-opener against the Panthers, safety Xavier Woods said he was targeting the home-opener against the Giants to begin his 2018 season. That won’t be happening as he didn’t practice all week and is listed as out of the game. He will be joined by center Travis Fredrick, that was a given. Defensive tackle Datone Jones created some optimism that he might play when he returned to practice for the first time in a while on a limited basis yesterday, but he is also listed as out for the game against the Giants.

Randy Gregory returned to practice today on a limited basis, but that only raised his status to doubtful for Sunday night. Generally doubtful players don’t go but there’s still a chance since he hasn’t been ruled out. If he can’t go, Taco Charlton will likely take his place with rookie Dorance Armstrong given some more snaps.

DeMarcus Lawrence, Dak Prescott and Kavon Frazier all still appear on the injury report although only Lawrence has missed a practice this week and that was on Wednesday. You can expect all three to play on Sunday.

The Giants have ruled out edge player Olivier Vernon for the game, that’s a break for a Cowboys offensive line that has struggled. Linebacker Tae Davis is listed as questionable.
