The Dallas Cowboys are facing a massive game on Sunday when they travel to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers. Now we will take a look at that game later on, but before we can break it down we must understand the injury situation for the Dallas Cowboys. It is late in the season, and like most teams in the NFL the injuries are mounting for the Dallas Cowboys. It appears that for every step they take forward and get a player back from the injury list, someone else goes down. Injuries may play as big a role in Sunday’s game as any play calling and X’s and O’s
DeMarcus Ware (Knee): Ware injured his knee during the blowout on Thanksgiving day against the Seattle Seahawks. However, he returned to practice on Thursday which is a good sign that he will be able to play come Sunday evening. Dallas will need his pressure on the defensive line if they want to win.
Marion Barber(Toe): Barber dislocated his toe last week and as a result he has not practiced all week. His status is still very unclear for Sunday’s game. Right now the Dallas Cowboys are calling him a game time decision.
Mike Jenkins (Hamstring): The young receiver has worked with trainers all week, to heal up his strained hamstring. However, he is doubtful to play on Sunday meaning he will miss his second consecutive game.
Miles Austin (Knee): Austin will continue to be sidelined with an injured knee. Originally they said he would be out two to four weeks. Missing Sunday’s game against Pittsburgh will mark his third week out.
Isiah Stanback (Shoulder): Stanback has worked out all week and he also played some last week in punt return duty. His shoulder will require off season surgery, but he will play Sunday in kick off return duty.
