The Dallas Cowboys will be without one of their brightest young stars, Linebacker Leighton Vander Esch, in tonight’s divisional battle with the New York Giants. He was named as one of their seven inactive players for Week 9.
The Giants are missing one of their key players as well tonight as starting WR Sterling Shepard has not fully recovered from a concussion.
Giants inactives: WR Sterling Shepard (concussion), QB Alex Tanney, OT Eric Smith, OL Chad Slade, OLB Chris Peace, LB Devonte Downs, DL R.J. McIntosh
The loss of Shepard will help balance things out when New York has the ball. But the Giants still have Golden Tate and Evan Engram as passing game targets, plus the dynamic Saquon Barkley for all sorts of uses.
Kickoff is about an hour away. Go Cowboys!
