The Dallas Cowboys will travel north to take on the New York Giants in a game that has both teams still fighting for the NFC East crown. The Cowboys have been getting healthier recently, but still have some key players hobbled.

Earlier today, coach Mike McCarthy stated that linebacker Leighton Vander Esch and offensive lineman Zack Martin wouldn’t participate in practice today. In fact, it’s unlikely that either player will get on the field this week.

Safety Xavier Woods, who missed last week’s game versus the Philadelphia Eagles, was able to practice today although he was limited. Running back Ezekiel Elliott doesn’t appear on the list this week as he was able to shake off his calf injury for a big game against the Eagles.

Safety Donovan Wilson didn’t practice with an illness, so that needs to be watched over the course of this week. Safety Darian Thompson was out with a concussion leaving the safety position particularly thin. Corner Chidobe Awuzie was limited with a groin/hamstring problem, and Rashard Robinson is still out with a knee issue.

The Cowboys secondary is once again beat up.

As for that other game that is so important this weekend:
