Cowboys @ Washington 2021: Week 14 Injury Report

The Dallas-Washington always brings an emotional cache when the two teams meet on the field, but in 2021 it's also fairly relevant to the rest of the with both currently qualifying for playoff spots. As we await tomorrow's big game, here's a look at the final reports for both teams.

Dallas Cowboys

Getting a 10-day break since their last game in New Orleans, the Cowboys will head to the nation's capital arguably the healthiest they've been all season. Not only is the shorter than usual, but Dallas looks forward to getting DE and DT back from as well.

It's hard to imagine Tony Pollard playing with a partially torn plantar fascia, having missed practice all week, but the team hasn't ruled him out just yet. Hopefully the extra rest has allowed to progress on some nagging and get back to his early-season form. The addition of veteran RB Ito Smith to the suggests Dallas is prepared to be without one of their top backs.

Losing Noah Brown hurts on and some offensive packages where his blocking skills are utilized. Thankfully, the rest of the WR group is ready to go and backup Malik Turner has proven he can be effective when called upon.

Washington Football Team

  • G Wes Schweltzer (ankle) – OUT
  • LB Kunaszyk (hamstring) – OUT
  • RB J.D. McKissic (concussion) – Questionable
  • WR (groin) – Questionable
  • LB Jamin Davis (concussion) – Questionable
  • S (foot) – Questionable

It's a tougher time medically for Washington. They have some starters banged up and a few more who've just gone on reserve lists.

Starting TE Logan Thomas suffered a knee injury last Sunday against the Raiders and will be out for at least three games on injured reserve. That knocks him out of three critical matchups; both games with the Cowboys and the away game against the Eagles.

Another key starter, DE Montez Sweat, will be out tomorrow after landing on the list. Coupled with the loss of Chase Young earlier this year, Washington's is far from what it could be and makes for a poor matchup with Dallas' finally coming back together.

As for their weekly , the two official “OUT” players are both backups. Washington can suffer those losses so long as starters like Curtis Samuel, Jamin Davis, and Landon Collins are available.

While not officially a starter, J.D. McKissic is an important offensive piece and the type of back that Dallas has historically struggled against. All four “Questionable” players have been practicing the last few days and are expected go on Sunday.
