The New England Patriots will take on the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday afternoon, trying to improve to 2-2 on the season. In order to do that, they will have to overcome some injury questions along their offensive line and at cornerback.
With that being said, let’s take a look at the two teams’ inactives.
- WR Kayshon Boutte
- QB Will Grier
- CB Jonathan Jones
- G Cole Strange
- OT Tyrone Wheatley Jr.
The Patriots entered the weekend with five players listed as questionable to play on Sunday. Two of those have since been ruled out: cornerback Jonathan Jones will miss a third straight game because of an ankle injury; left guard Cole Strange is inactive after suffering a knee injury during last week’s win over the New York Jets.
The other three, meanwhile, are all good to go. Defensive tackles Davon Godchaux (ankle) and Christian Barmore (knee) as well as cornerback Shaun Wade (ankle) will suit up for the Patriots against the Cowboys.
The other inactives are all healthy scratches. Kayshon Boutte will not play for a third straight game, Tyrone Wheatley Jr. for a second. Will Grier, on the other hand, will serve as he third emergency quarterback; he will be allowed to enter the game in case both starter Mac Jones and backup Bailey Zappe become unavailable.
- WR Jalen Brooks
- DT Junior Fehoko
- TE Peyton Hendershot
- QB Trey Lance
- S Israel Mukuamu
- CB Eric Scott Jr.
- OT Tyron Smith
The most notable member of the Cowboys’ inactives list was already ruled out on Friday; left tackle Tyron Smith has been ruled out because of a knee injury. Fellow starting offensive linemen Tyler Biadasz (hamstring) and Zack Martin (ankle), meanwhile, are good to go after entering the weekend as questionable.
