The Dallas Cowboys will welcome the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday in an attempt to right their season and get focused on making the playoffs. They do so with a fairly healthy roster that only had two players not practicing but a significant group who practiced as limited participants.
Linebacker is the trouble spot for the Cowboys as Leigthon Vander Esch continues not to practice and Sean Lee joined him on Wednesday. Vander Esch has the neck issue that sounds like it’s going to keep him out for a while. At today's press conference Jason Garrett said it could be a little while before he comes back. His replacement in the starting lineup, Sean Lee, has thigh and pectoral injuries that kept him out of practice today.
The Cowboys did get Jeff Heath and Tony Pollard back, both of them were able to go as limited participants. As was Antwaun Woods, despite his recent arrest.
Cornerback Byron Jones was limited with a hip problem; he had surgery on one of his hips in the offseason. Punter Chris Jones has an abdomen injury that he picked up in the Bears game but he was able to complete that game.
Michael Bennett, Zack Martin and La’el Collins were also limited but have been playing through their injuries.
The Rams injury list is incredibly short with only tight end Gerald Everett unable to practice.
