Cowboys vs. Steelers injury report: Dez Bryant limited, DeMarcus Ware sits

US PRESSWIRE

The Cowboys are in the playoff hunt and are dealing with injury issues at the worst time.

When the teams step onto the turf at Heinz Field, the Dallas Cowboys and Pittsburgh Steelers will have plenty to play for. The Steelers are holding on to the sixth seed in the AFC only by virtue of a tiebreaker over the Cincinnati Bengals while the Cowboys trail the Chicago Bears by a game in the race for the final NFC Wild Card spot.

With this in mind, the Cowboys are having injury issues at the wrong time. Wide receiver Dez Bryant was limited in practice with a finger injury after missing Wednesday's session, and linebacker DeMarcus Ware sat out for the second straight day with an elbow injury. Nose tackle Jay Ratliff also missed practice with a groin injury.

The news is slightly better elsewhere on the injury report. Running back DeMarco Murray is dealing with a foot injury and was a limited participant in practice Thursday after missing it entirely on Wednesday. Guard Nate Livings and cornerback Morris Claiborne were both limited after missing Wednesday's practice with concussions. Safety Charlie Peprah was a limited participant with a foot injury.
