    Cowboys @ Rams: Week 5 Injury Report

    For the past couple of weeks, the (3-1) were hit with the bug on both sides of the ball and had significant players out. While many expected the team to crumble (as we have all seen the team do), they proved the doubters wrong and strung together three straight wins after dropping their season opener.

    Now, entering SoFi Stadium to face the reigning Champions, the (2-2), the Cowboys are coming into this Sunday afternoon bout with still some — but they have almost all of their key guys.

    The player that is still expected out this week and possibly longer is . But with how QB has been performing, there may be no urgency to rush him back, as there is no doubt the wants Prescott fully healthy.

    (See what I did there? “Rush” him back, and the guy filling in for him is named Rush. Ok, no more jokes.)

    Beyond Prescott, there is one more big name who is out on Sunday and possibly for several games, but the world isn't ending without him in the lineup. Well, it could, but let's hope it doesn't.

    On the Rams' side, their main injuries are within their . According to writer Bret Stuter of Ramblin' Fan, the Rams will field their fifth new offensive line group this season.

    With the way the Cowboys' has been playing so far this season, it could be a long game for the Rams, as the Boys will surely take advantage of new faces across their line.

    To find out who's missing for both teams, check out the details below.

    Dallas Cowboys

    • DT Quinton Bohanna (neck/shoulder)– Questionable
    • TE  (knee)– Questionable
    • WR  (groin)– Questionable
    • CB Jourdan Lewis (groin)– Questionable
    • RB  (illness)– Questionable
    • T  (chest)– Doubtful
    • QB Dak Prescott (knee)– Out

    While Prescott would typically get the nod as their most significant injury, the team announced that he would miss this game earlier in the week, so his designation is no surprise nor eye-popping for me.

    But if there were one absence that hurts them the most, it's Tackle Jason Peters. And before we discuss Peters, I understand fans may point to CeeDee Lamb as their preferred choice, but the team is optimistic that he will suit up. Plus, he told reporters himself that he was fine.

    Shifting to Peters, after only registering 14 snaps in Week Three and then 21 in Week Four, there was hope that the team could continue to ramp up his playing time as he was showing solid productivity. However, after suffering a chest injury in practice, the are that he will be out for this Sunday and possibly longer.

    While the team does have back, who originally started at , if anything were to happen to him, things could get ugly quickly since the team doesn't have much depth for the position.

    Here are other players who popped up on the that project to play after logging full practice sessions all week:

    Los Angeles Rams

    • C  (knee)– Out
    • CB Cobie Bryant (hamstring)– Out
    • DB Jordan Fuller (hamstring)– Out
    • DB David Long Jr. (groin)– Questionable
    • DB  (ribs)– Questionable
    • G – Out

    As mentioned above, the offensive line is arguably the most decimated unit for the Rams. However, the group has two players missing and two who are questionable, so there could be a chance that Rush and the wideouts only have to face All-Pro .
