    The are starting to pule up for the Cowboys. Dez Bryant's much-discussed knee will likely keep him out this week and for a couple more after. He has not been officially ruled out but that seems to be nothing but gamesmanship on 's part.

    La'el Collins' injury may not be as bad as originally feared. Early thoughts that he could go to IR have cooled and now the talk is that he may only be out a few weeks. Veteran will get the start.

    Tyron Smith was a surprise inactive last week against Chicago and has yet to return to practice. Thankfully, played well at last week. Doug Free is not expected to miss any game time with his minor quad issue.

    Not appearing on this list for the first all year is . Unfortunately, that's because he was placed on with an ongoing back problem.

    Orlando Scandrick should return to action this week but may see limited reps as the team protects his hamstring. played well as the slot corner last week and could still see a lot of time.

    • TE Vance McDonald (hip) – LP
    • TE Garrett Celek (back) – LP
    • CB Jimmie Ward (quadricep) – DNP

    The 49ers use McDonald and Celek fairly evenly. Of the team's three passing touchdowns this year, McDonald has caught two of them. He will be missed in the redzone if Blaine Gabbert can get the close enough.

    Jimmie Ward is a starting corner and his loss would help offset Dallas being without Dez Bryant. If Ward can't go then Chris Davis, a third-year player out of Auburn, is the next man up on the 49ers' . He went undrafted in 2014.
