    The Cowboys have already announced five of their seven inactives for Sunday's game based on these . The other two spots will likely be occupied by rookie RB and one of the backup linebackers.

    Tony Romo and Chaz Green were both able to practice some this week but are not yet ready to play. Romo's return date is still in flux; some are now projecting it won't be until after the Day game.

    On , Morris Claiborne and Barry Church both suffered injuries against the Eagles that will keep them out for several weeks. Neither is serious enough to warrant putting them on . Dallas will count on rookie to keep forming well in a big role, as he did during 's absence.

    At , will once again be a starter in place of Church. This could allow rookie to get in some work as a reserve player. He has either been a healthy scratch most weeks or hasn't seen the field much when active.

    Anthony Hitchens popped up on the in the middle of the week with a knee issue. He is “questionable” for Sunday, which would likely put veteran in as the starting middle LB. Dallas might also give second-year player , who had a great , some reps if the game allows.

    Jamar Taylor, CB

    Cleveland Browns

    • WR Ricardo Louis (hamstring) – DNP
    • OL (shoulder) – LP
    • LB Tank Carder (concussion) – LP
    • CB Jamar Taylor (groin) – LP

    The big names here for Cleveland are Cameron Erving, their starting , and starting corner Jamar Taylor.

    Erving missed most of the week, only practicing Friday in a limited capacity. He was the 19th-overall pick in the 2015 draft. If he can't play, third-year backup Gabe Ikard would get the start. Ikard joined the Browns just last Monday, having floated around the league since being undrafted in 2014.

    Jamar Taylor was traded to the Browns last April during the draft, along with a pick swap. He was originally taken in the of the 2013 draft by the . He's started every game for Cleveland in 2016 and has two interceptions so far.

    Taylor will likely play, having practiced all week on a limited basis. The backup is 33-year-old Tramon Williams, who spent the bulk of his career with the .

    It's worth nothing that the Cleveland Browns already have 12 players on Injured Reserve this year, a staggering number. Comparatively, the Cowboys only have three.
