The Cowboys have ruled out three players, all backups.
Safeties Donovan Wilson and Darian Thompson are out as is linebacker Luke Gifford. The only other question is the status of guard Zack Martin. He was limited again on Friday, as he has been all week. Whenever Jason Garrett has been asked about Martin in a press conference, he generally just gives a generic answer of he’s practicing, or he’s like other injured players and doing what is asked. Except Martin is the only one that is limited. That has to be a little concerning considering it’s a back issue, a tough injury to get a real handle on sometimes. Let’s hope the best guard in football plays, and can play up to his abilities.
The real good news concerns players like Amari Cooper, Tyron Smith, DeMarcus Lawrence and Byron Jones; they are full-go for the game. Sean Lee didn’t practice on Friday but it was not injury related.

The Giants look like they will have tackle Mike Remmers available as he was a full participant on Friday.
