The Dallas Cowboys are at a pivotal point in the season. With a Cowboys win against the Buffalo Bills, a loss by the Philadelphia Eagles, and a loss by the San Francisco 49ers, the Cowboys would find themselves as the top seed in the NFC East with three games left in the season. This is a long way from where the team was after their 42-10 loss to the 49ers. Dak Prescott has spearheaded the team’s late season surge, and he is the consensus favorite to win MVP by the oddsmakers.

After beginning the with a favorable forecast of no precipitation, that has changed. The weather in Buffalo projects a 75% chance of rain and 18PMH winds. The weather in Dallas today happens to be rainy, perhaps preparing the Cowboys for what to expect this Sunday. Prescott and the team should be ready. Here is your final injury report of the week,

Malik Hooker was upgraded to limited participation Friday with an ankle injury. Jonathan Hankins was ruled out of this week’s game with an ankle injury. This comes as no surprise. Hankins sustained the injury against Philadelphia and hadn’t practiced all week.

Jalen Tolbert, Brandin Cooks and Stephon Gilmore were all ruled as questionable with an illness. Micah Parsons, also with an illness designation, was listed as a full go today and has no injury designation for Sunday.

Though several players for the Cowboys were deemed as questionable, head coach Mike McCarthy feels good about the chances of having most of his players available.

We also have injury news for the Bills. Earlier today, Buffalo ruled out Micah Hyde, who was injured last week against the Kansas City Chiefs. Taylor Rapp will play a more prominent role in Hyde’s absence. The Bills also ruled out edge rusher A.J. Epenesa.
