    No surprise on Romo, who will be in for at least the next few weeks. Unless you fall down a well, I have a feeling that you'll know when his status changes.

    Leary has been working his way back from a groin strain and should be active on Sunday. Dallas has only Leary and on the roster as interior line reserves, although has taken snaps at before.

    Tapper, the rookie , is still dealing with a back and hasn't practiced in several weeks. He will likely be a game day scratch for a while. Dallas will be thin at defensive end but can utilize as a pass rusher.

    Still recovering form an Achilles injury, Nzeocha has been out of practice and is unlikely to play this week. He should be active once healthy after a strong camp and early .

    • DT Robert Thomas (illness) – Out
    • LB Jonathan Casillas (ribs) – Limited
    • S (shoulder) – Limited

    The big news here is Casillas, the Giants' starting weak side linebacker. He has been nursing a rib injury but has been able to get some practice work in. He will likely be fine for Sunday.

    Thompson is a third-round rookie who has recently emerged as the starting . He has been dealing with a shoulder issue the last few weeks. Thompson has been limited in practice but could still play in the season opener.

    Thomas is at the bottom of the Giants' DT rotation and may not have been active either way.
