Cowboys, Packers Inactives for Week 5

Without kickoff about an hour away, here's who won't be dressing for today's Week 5 matchup between the and the .

Dallas Cowboys

No big surprises for the Cowboys. Sean Lee is the major name on this list but his availability has been in doubt all week. This will be the second game Lee has missed with a hamstring , and his absence was certainly felt in last week's loss to the Rams. Dallas will hope that ' return will help make up for not having Lee.

Stephen Paea, a starter in the base , will be out with a knee injury. This is somewhat offset by 's return from , but Paea's role as the space-eater will need to be addressed some other way. We may see move to the one-technique position and see more of Irving and playing as the three-tech .

With coming back from injury and reportedly practicing at this week, Kavon Frazier lands on the inactive list for the first time this year. This means Dallas will likely look to veteran as the fourth .

Green Bay Packers

  • RB Ty Montgomery
  • G Adam Pankey
  • T David Bakhtiari
  • DT Montravius Adams
  • LB Chris Odom
  • LB
  • CB Lenzy Pipkins

The big news here is the absence of Ty Montgomery, the versatile runner-receiver who has had a productive year so far for the Packers. Rookie should get the bulk of the work at RB with Montgomery out, and he had a solid showing last week against the Bears.

The Packers could be vulnerable on the with starting David Bakhtiari and reserve Adam Pankey out. Journeyman Ulrick John is the next man up on the Packers' official .

The defensive inactives for Green Bay are all reserves; they should be at full strength with their starters. These missing backups will make them thin, however, if any of their normal guys go down.
