There's a lot of moving parts here, but the big losses for Tuesday's game are Donovan Wilson and Anthony Brown. Wilson had been the Cowboys best safety over the last several weeks, making plays on the football and forcing turnovers in the process. Brown, who has been up and down this season, remains a vital piece to the secondary and the loss of his in the secondary will be noticeable.

Steven Parker had been flashing when given the opportunity to play. Obviously Zack Martin is a huge loss as well, but with the way the Cowboys' season has been going, it was always likely that they were going to be very cautious with Martin given his importance long-term with the Cowboys.

This provides another opportunity for Deante Burton and Rashard Robinson to get significant playing time. One has to wonder if this is the week that fourth-round pick is able to work his way off of the inactive list and get on the field.
