As we sit a couple of hours until the Dallas Cowboys (4-1) take on the Philadelphia Eagles (5-0) in a primetime Sunday Night Football matchup, we're here to provide an update on which players will be in or out for the NFC East showdown.
On the Cowboys' side, all eyes are on QB Dak Prescott. Fans went crazy on Friday when they saw Prescott's game designation go from out to questionable, as it was the first time he wasn't listed “out” since his injury.
Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (right thumb) is listed questionable for Sunday evening's game at Eagles. He made important strides this week in throwing program and is scheduled to throw again pregame. Cooper Rush is expected to make fifth straight start.
Additionally, his in-game status is also significant because that would hint that he's close to returning. But, as Cowboys reporter Michael Gehlken mentioned, QB Cooper Rush is on track to start against the Eagles.
Practice-wise, Peters had limited participation all week. Lamb popped up on the injury report on Friday. However, both are expected to play, according to Cowboy media members.
Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb (hip) doesn't appear at risk of missing Sunday at Eagles despite being listed as questionable. EVP Stephen Jones just now on @1053thefan: "I just think he's working through a couple things there …but feel like he'll get all that sorted out for the game." https://t.co/6AfFXyYP5g

Here are other players who popped up on the injury report this week that were able to log limited-to-full practice sessions and should see the field on Sunday: DT Quinton Bohanna, TE Jake Ferguson, S Jayron Kearse, CB Jourdan Lewis, G Connor McGovern, LB Micah Parsons, TE Dalton Schultz, and S Donovan Wilson.
Also, here are other roster moves the team made on Saturday:
Cowboys have 52 players on allotted 53-man roster. So they will need to declare only six players inactive Sunday at Eagles instead of customary seven when two players have been elevated from practice squad. Also, there is now room on 53 for LB Damone Clark’s activation next week. https://t.co/bC2FeJ1OWq

For the Eagles, they bring in a moderately healthy team. Despite having several players on the injury report this week, they only have one player carrying an injury designation leading up to the game.
That player is CB Josh Jobe.
The Eagles removed injury designations for Jordan Mailata (shoulder), Landon Dickerson (ankle), Jason Kelce (ankle), Kenny Gainwell (ribs), Jake Elliott (ankle), Avonte Maddox (ankle) & Isaac Seumalo (ankle).
All were full participants at practice & expected to play vs. Cowboys.

Some other moves that the Eagles made were activating T Andre Dillard from injured reserve after he recovered from a broken forearm, placing DE Janarius Robinson on IR, elevating S Andre Chachere from the practice squad, and placing T Jarrid Williams on the practice squad IR.
