We’re getting closer to the Cowboys invading Washington in an important NFC East clash. As Jason Garrett noted earlier today, the first goal is to win the division and that starts with winning games against division opponents. Injuries always play a role in an NFL season, so let’s see where both sides stand a few days out from the game.
The Cowboys are relatively healthy, and today one of their starters returned to practice. Tyrone Crawford was held out of Wednesday’s practice as he recovers from a hip issue, but he returned to the field today in a limited capacity. That was the only significant change for the Cowboys. Luke Gifford is still not practicing, and Tavon Austin is also sitting out with concussion symptoms.
Zack Martin, along with Darian Thompson and Donovan Wilson, join Crawford as limited participants.

Washington is facing an assortment of injury issues. DT Jonathan Allen is not practicing, and running back Derrius Guice had surgery that will keep him out indefinitely. Jordan Reed is practicing in a limited fashion, but corner Quentin Dunbar was out today after being limited yesterday. Safety Montae Nicholson was upgraded to limited today after missing yesterday.
