We’re just over 48 hours away from what’s undoubtedly going to be another classic chapter in a long-standing NFL rivalry. The Dallas Cowboys host the Philadelphia Eagles at AT&T Stadium on Sunday night with a lot hanging in the balance. First, the winner of this game will hold the lead in the NFC East for the time being. Second, this game may decide the NFL MVP race. Quarterback Dak Prescott has made a strong case for the distinction with his recent play over the last few months.
However, NFL media and the oddsmakers still have Jalen Hurts with the third-best odds of winning the award. What happens Sunday will significantly affect the perception of both teams ahead of a pivotal playoff push. Simply stated, Sunday night is an opportunity for both teams to make a statement. Eagles and Cowboys fans can hardly wait. Here’s our last look at the Cowboys’ injuries before the critical clash.

Everybody’s a go — including Peyton Hendershot in his return from IR.

The Cowboys are as close to all-hands on deck as possible. Rico Dowdle was upgraded to full participation Friday and should play Sunday night. Activated from injured reserve, tight end Peyton Hendershot is also healthy and will take the field this week. The only player ruled out is Matt Waletzko, who despite practicing this week, is still on injured reserve.
The Cowboys also expect Mike McCarthy to coach on Sunday after his mid-week surgery.
