The Dallas Cowboys just took another hit to their defensive line. They were already missing DeMarcus Lawrence and Neville Gallimore. Just this week Carlos Watkins and Dorance Armstrong were added to the list of players that would miss this week’s Monday night game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Now we can add another defensive linemen to the list of those not playing. Reserve defensive end Bradlee Anae has been ruled out.

The Cowboys are getting Randy Gregory back, but they will need a lot of help from the backups. Tarell Basham will probably be pressed into more snaps this week. Rookie Chauncey Golston might finally see his number called after spending training camp and preseason injured, and Azur Kamara might see more time as well. The Cowboys could also shift Brent Urban out there some on run downs.

The big question is how they will use Micah Parsons, especially if Keanu Neal can’t go. Parsons might have to do some switching between positions all night long.
