With their Thanksgiving win over the Washington Redskins, the Dallas Cowboys took control of the NFC East division race. Their next game will be against the NFC-leading New Orleans Saints, and head coach Jason Garrett had important injury update heading into the clash.
On Monday afternoon, Garrett gave the first injury report of the week. He noted that OT Tyron Smith, OT Cameron Fleming, LB Sean Lee, WR/RB Tavon Austin, and TE Geoff Swaim all did not practice.
Among those players limited were G Xavier Su'a-Filo, G Zach Martin, DL Maliek Collins, and WR Allen Hurns. DL Taco Charlton was a full participant.
Fleming, Martin, Collins, Su'a-Filo, and Hurns all started last week against Washington.
Smith, the Cowboys' five-time Pro Bowl LT, missed Thursday's game with a stinger.
It will be a tough task for Jason Garrett's squad even if all of their players are completely healthy.
The New Orleans Saints have scored at least 21 points in every game this season, while allowing 20 points or less in seven games.
