The Cowboys had another defensive lineman miss practice with an illness. Randy Gregory missed practice for the second straight day due to an undisclosed illness. The fortunate part, at least so far, is that the Cowboys don’t believe that it has anything to do with COVID-19.
Now DeMarcus Lawrence has missed practice because of illness. It’s unknown if this has anything to do with Gregory’s illness, but the new COVID-19 protocols are very strict about players not practicing if they have any sign of illness.

Zack Martin is back to a full participant in practice. The Cowboys were being smart with Martin since his presence in the lineup seems to have calmed things down somewhat with all the other issue going on along the offensive line.
Ezekiel Elliott was also a full participant.
Tyler Biadasz missed practice again with his hamstring injury. Joe Looney will be the guy at center if Biadasz does not improve quickly.
Andy Dalton is back and will presumably be the starter on Sunday. He talked a little about his recent run of injury and illness.
Cowboys QB Andy Dalton said his Oct. 25 concussion was the first he had. “Right when I thought I was feeling normal, I got hit by COVID. ...It was a crazy three weeks for me.” Missed past two games. Dalton said he’s yet to fully regain his sense of smell and taste.— Michael Gehlken (@GehlkenNFL) November 19, 2020
