The Dallas Cowboys are a couple of days away from their big NFC Divisional Round playoff game against the Los Angeles Rams.
Dallas, which topped the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC’s Wild Card round last weekend, could be lacking in wide receiver depth on Saturday night.
The Cowboys will obviously be without Allen Hurns, who suffered a season-ending injury in the first half of the Seahawks’ game. Hurns isn’t the only Dallas wideout who’s dealing with an injury, though.
Veteran slot wide receiver Cole Beasley also suffered an injury in the win over the Seahawks. He’s been limited this week and his status for Saturday’s game is unclear.
“If Cole Beasley and Blake Jarwin practice today they’ll be limited, per Jason Garrett. Both have ankle injuries,” Rob Phillips tweeted.

Garrett had said earlier in the week that the Cowboys would be monitoring Beasley’s status as the week went on.
“We’ll just see how he feels as the week goes on. He did get an ankle sprain in the game, was able to fight through it and be very effective for us throughout,” Garrett said. “But we’ll see how it feels. Seemed like he was doing a little bit better today and we’ll just see how he is day by day as the week goes on.”
Beasley, 29, had 65 catches for 672 yards and 3 touchdowns during the season. He had three catches for 28 yards in the win over the Seahawks.
Dallas and Los Angeles are set to kick off at 8:15 p.m. E.T. on Saturday night. The game will be on FOX.
