    Who’s in, Who’s out: Cowboys vs Bears Week 8 injury report

    After having a relatively healthy roster for the first time this season against the last week, the have several players on the and one notable starter who's missing today's game against the .

    While it's not ideal to have multiple players on the , it's encouraging that some are “expected to play,” according to media reports. (Check out who those guys are below.)

    Dallas Cowboys

    Starting with the one notable starter that will miss today's clash with the Bears, it's . Although listed as doubtful during the week, there was hope that he could suit up. But after learning the severity of the knee sprain he suffered last week against the Lions, the Cowboys are holding him out.

    With the bye next week, it's better to preserve Elliott for the long run.

    Shifting to the other players on the injury report, here are the guys that carry injury designations:

    As mentioned above, it's not ideal to have several players across the board injured — especially when they're starters. However, according to NFL reporter Ian Rapport, Parsons and Schultz are expected to suit up for the Boys.

    Also, expect rookie to make his debut. Clark began his NFL career injured, but it's encouraging to see him get snaps this season, as many people speculated he wouldn't see the field until next year.

    Chicago Bears

    On the Bears' side, they will only be missing two players. Two offensive linemen, to be specific. Starting RT Larry Borom will miss this week as he recovers from a concussion, and Lucas Patrick got shifted to the IR for a toe injury.

    With a healthy team, expect the Bears to come in Jerry World full of energy after beating the last week. Also, with no key players missing, this game could be closer than people think.

    Despite their record, the Bears only allow 185.1 passing yards per game, which ranks Top 3 in the league. On the flip side, they rank near the bottom of the NFL in rushing yards allowed per game. But without Elliott and Brown (who have been vital pieces to the ), there could be some hiccups on the Cowboys' offensive drives.

    Add in that the Bears have the best-run game in the NFL and have a mobile ,  this game could spell trouble for the Cowboys' , as they have been average at defending the run. So, my advice is: Don't expect a blowout.
