    Dallas Cowboys

    The biggest story here is a name that you don't see. has been a full participant in the team's practices so far this week. However, he is definitely not starting on Sunday and there's still a question as to if he'll even be active.

    Another big return is left , who was a full participant in Friday's practice after clearing the concussion protocol. His play is vital to the Cowboys' success this week as they look to run the ball and keep it away from the Steelers' .

      RB (knee) – OUT

    • WR Markus Wheaton (shoulder) – OUT
    • WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (foot) – OUT
    • S Jordan Dangerfield (groin) – OUT

    While not listed here after returning to practice on Friday, Maurkice Pouncey has been out all week with a thumb injury. Hand injuries are easy to aggravate or re-injure, so we could see him leave the game if something goes wrong.

    With DeAngelo Williams out, the depth behind is suspect. Fitzgerald Toussaint only has four carries this season. Bell will likely play as many snaps as his body can take.
