We're used to seeing Sean Lee on here at this point, but DeMarcus Lawrence joining him is not a good sight. Thankfully, Tank's shoulder issue isn't expected to keep him from playing. Dallas need him badly this week to force Blake Bortles into some bad throws.

Also questionable from the are Randy Gregory and Maliek Collins, but Dallas has options if they can't go. should make his 2018 debut this week, which will allow to play DE if needed.

Missing both Lee and Joe Thomas makes Dallas thin at , but they've been carrying seven this year. and rookie could get some extra time on the field.

  • OL Josh Wells (groin) – OUT
  • CB D.J. Hayden (toe) – OUT
