2016 Divisional Round Injury Report: Cowboys Healthy, Packers Hurting

The Cowboys look to get back to the business of winning football games this week in the 2016 NFL . They will host the after enjoying a first-round bye.

Here is the final from each team based on their Friday practices.

  • LP – Limited Participate
  • DNP – Did Not Participate 
  • OUT – Already Ruled Out

Dallas Cowboys

La'el Collins

None of these players are expected to miss today's game. Their limited roles in practice were mostly precautionary and for extra rest and healing. They are all veterans who should play large roles against Green Bay.

Though he doesn't appear on the , is not expected to play today. He was also a limited participant in practice and is still working back from a foot issue, but he's still not on the official roster since coming back from .

Along with Collins, expect the other six inactive Cowboys to be players at the bottom of their respective depth charts. My projection is that they will be: QB , RB , DT , LB , CB , and S .

Green Bay Packers

Jordy Nelson, Packers

  • RB James Starks (concussion) – OUT
  • WR (ribs) – OUT
  • WR Jeff Janis (quadricep) – LP
  • G T.J. Lang (foot) – LP
  • G/C (knee) – OUT
  • CB Quinten Rollins (neck/concussion) – LP

The big news, of course, is the absence of Jordy Nelson. His injury was covered in greater detail a few days ago. Suffice to say, will be missing his favorite target and that will have a major impact on the game.

Starting T.J. Lang has been bothered by a foot issue all week. He is expected to play but will draw tough assignments with the Cowboys' athletic defensive tackles. A bad wheel could be problematic if he's having to keep up with .

Quinten Rollins the Packers' third corner as is still questionable for today. Rookie Josh Hawkins, an undrafted , may be forced into a larger role.
