The Dallas Cowboys (2-1) clash with the Washington Commanders (1-2) in an NFC East showdown at noon today. While there will be many storylines to watch, the biggest one that comes out of the Cowboys' side is WR Michael Gallups' debut.
While he will be on a limited snap count, it's a good sign to see one of their biggest playmakers return, as his presence should provide a massive boost to the offense.
Besides Gallup, the team will still be without two starters as they welcome the Commanders into Jerry World, but with the way they have been competing, there may be no worries.
On the Commanders side, they bring in a reasonably healthy team.
(Fun Fact: Expect the commentators to make many comments about two brothers facing off against each other this game. Hint: Their last name is Martin)
To find out who's in, out, or inactive for both teams–check out the details below.
- S Jayron Kearse (knee) — OUT
- QB Dak Prescott (thumb)–OUT
- WR Jalen Tolbert (Inactive)
- LB Devin Harper (Inactive)

It's always a good sign when your injury report goes from seven players last week to just two this week. The two biggest names active for today's game are TE Dalton Schultz and LG Connor McGovern. It's unknown how much playing time they will handle–but the team is slowly getting everyone back, and it's coming at the right time.

There was a chance that the Commanders would have had two guys missing to protect QB Carson Wentz today, but recently, the team reported that Charles Leno is active–so expect all hands on deck for this NFL East brawl.
