The bye week helped the Dallas Cowboys get healthier as they are getting back three starters this week in nose tackle Jay Ratliff, defensive end Kenyon Coleman and center Phil Costa.

Ratliff has finally recovered from his ankle injury and will be making his season debut, Coleman missed the last two games with a knee injury and Costa has had back issues, and he missed the team's last three games. The Cowboys are glad that Costa has returned to the lineup as backup center Ryan Cook is questionable with a hamstring injury.

One starter who may not be playing on Sunday is linebacker Anthony Spencer, who was limited in practice on Friday due to a shoulder injury and is questionable.

Cornerback Morris Claiborne, who suffered a migraine which caused him to miss Thursday's practice, was back and fully participating on Friday.

Special teams could be an issue as starting punter Chris Jones is questionable with a left knee injury, and after sitting out practice all week he was able to do some punting on Friday.

Backup Brian Moorman is officially out with a right groin injury. The Cowboys did bring in three punters this week in the case that Jones is unable to go.
