At Thursday's practice, the Dallas Cowboys had six players who did not practice, and another two who were limited. Of those players who were out or limited were four were starters.
Center Phil Costa was the only offensive player who was out, and he was still out with back issues that have been hurting for the past few weeks.
The other three all come from the defensive side of the ball in nose tackle Jay Ratliff was out with an ankle injury, safety Gerald Sensabaugh was limited with a knee calf injury and then linebacker Anthony Spencer was did not practice with a shoulder issue. Punter Chris Jones also was out with a left knee issue.
Playing on Monday Night Football does give these players an extra to recover from their injuries, so things could change once it gets closer to game day:
