Who’s in, Who’s out: Cowboys @ 49ers injury report

When the time reads 5:30 p.m. CT on Sunday, the will battle the in an Divisional matchup. This game is the second year in a row that these two teams face off in the — and the Niners won last season.

Leading up to this game, there have been several notable storylines around this game that you will likely hear during the broadcast.

Some include the quick emergence of San Francisco (gauging how he will look), the revenge factor as the Cowboys look to redeem themselves, and whether Cowboys will look fine on Sunday.

While all those are important, we're here to focus on another storyline. And that's the for both teams.

Surprisingly, when looking at both teams a common theme emerges.

Both are “essentially” at full strength.

I use the word “surprisingly” because both teams have battled several all season, and at the most crucial time in the year, they are ready to battle.

While each team will have at least one player missing on Sunday, I don't expect anyone to say the injury bug swayed the toward one team over another.

So, with that in mind, check out who's missing in this NFC Divisional showdown.

Dallas Cowboys

On the Cowboys' side, they will be without T , who hurt his hip last week against the . Although Peters was a starter, the team can rely on to fill in.

But if McGovern goes down, we will have a lot of “fun” watching them shuffle linemen.

The other player who could be out is S , who hurt his knee last week against the Bucs. While that could be a huge loss that plays in the Niners' favor, expect to see him on the field as Kearse told reporters his knee is fine and he's good to go.

San Francisco 49ers

Shifting to the Niners, they are pretty healthy across the board.

The only two players that won't see action are former starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and Ambry Thomas.

Their absences won't be a massive loss for the team, so expect this game to be exciting as both teams have all their stars available to play.
