Guess the Cowboys “inactives” for Sunday’s game against the Broncos? – Dallas Cowboys News

Each week the Dallas Cowboys can only dress 46 players from the 53-man roster. The NFL does this to allot for injuries to where a team at full health doesn’t have the advantage of more usable players over a team that is banged up. It helps keep it fair. As a result, the coaches are faced with the decision of determining which players they want to suit up. If a player is injured, then that’s an easy decision. But for those who are not, those decisions are not easy and coaches are forced to determine who will be the healthy scratches.

Here are last week’s seven inactives for the Cowboys courtesy of NFL.com:


Both Anthony HItchens and Jourdan Lewis were dealing with injuries, but the other five players were healthy scratches.

Here is the latest Cowboys injury report courtesy of the Mothership:


Perusing through the injury report, there are two easy ones to call here – Hitchens and Orlando Scandrick. Hitchens will be inactive for several weeks as he recovers from his knee injury he suffered in the preseason game against the Oakland Raiders. As R.J. Ochoa reported on Friday, Scandrick has been ruled out with a wrist injury.

Both Byron Jones (groin) and Terrance Williams (ankle) are listed as questionable and practiced in limited fashion on Friday. They could be a game time decision.

Here are my predictions for the Cowboys seven inactives:


Anthony Hitchens

Out due to injury

Orlando Scandrick

Out due to injury

Cooper Rush

Nothing has changed so whatever the coaches were…
