Several Cowboys set to Play vs Patriots After Being Listed as Questionable

The Dallas Cowboys will look to win their fifth consecutive game against the on Sunday. Ezekiel Elliott, Tyron Smith, Randy Gregory, and Trevon Diggs were all listed as questionable during the week. That's four key starters they will be needed for a tough road test in Foxboro despite the 2-3 record of the Patriots.

Fans of can breathe easy though. According to 's Ian Rapoport, they are all expected to play.

Elliott suffered a rib after landing on the pylon when he went out of bounds last Sunday against the . There's still some soreness but not enough to keep him out. Elliott has only missed one game due to injury in his career.

Smith made Cowboys fans everywhere gasp when he had to get an MRI on his neck which cost him 14 games in 2020. However, it was just precautionary which makes sense considering his of neck issues. Smtih said he would play all 17 games this season and, for now, that looks to be true.

Gregory dealt with a knee issue during the week. According to Pro , Gregory was credited with a team-high nine pressures against the Giants and also racked up six hurries and three hits. He recorded two the previous week against the and the Cowboys will need him to apply pressure to rookie Mac Jones this week.

Diggs recorded an interception for the fifth straight game against the Giants in Week 5. However, he also suffered an ankle sprain that he nursed all week. The precaution paid off and he'll look to add to his league-leading six interceptions and 10 passes defended against the Patriots.
