We petty much knew the list of players who would not participate in Wednesday's practice for the Dallas Cowboys. Coach Jason Garrett revealed that earlier today in his press conference. But now we have official confirmation.
The offensive side of the ball is really hit hard by injury as wide receivers Amari Cooper and Randall Cobb were sidelined. Cooper is dealing with multiple injuries - a contusion on his thigh and a problematic ankle. Cobb is dealing with the dreaded back issue which is always a tough one to put a timeline on.
The Cowboys starting offensive tackles, Tyron Smith and La’el Collins, both were unable to practice today, meaning Cameron Fleming and Brandon Knight were running with the ones. Both Smith and Collins were working off to the side which is a little promising.
The Cowboys also rested Travis Fredrick today.

The Cowboys secondary is also banged up as cornerbacks Byron Jones and Anthony Brown are both sidelined with hamstring issues.
Dallas also had four players who were limited - Dorance Armstrong, Michael Gallup, Chris Jones and Zack Martin.
