Final Injury Report Gives Optimism For Bailey, Smith; Tough Task vs. Joey Bosa
(Editor’s Note: Each week, the staff of DallasCowboys.com will present “6 Days to Sunday” for the upcoming game, presenting a daily update for each team as they head into the upcoming contest. This week, the Cowboys are on a short week for the annual Thanksgiving Day, so the preparation will be cut in half as the Chargers come to town for Thursday’s game.)
WHAT: San Diego Chargers (4-6) at Dallas Cowboys (5-5)
WHEN: Thursday, Nov. 23 - 3:30 p.m. (Central)
WHERE: AT&T Stadium, Arlington Texas
TELEVISION: CBS (Jim Nantz, Tony Romo & Tracy Wolfson)
There are two other groin injuries that could be healed in time for Thursday. Garrett said the Cowboys are hopeful tackle Tyron Smith will be able to practice on Tuesday after missing two straight games with a groin injury. Kicker Dan Bailey has missed four games with a groin injury but after kicking on the field before Sunday’s game, there is a chance he could play this week.
Safety Jeff Heath is expected to return to action this week after missing the game with a concussion.
However, Garrett didn’t sound as optimistic about linebacker Sean Lee, who has now missed most of the last two games with a hamstring injury. “I wouldn’t expect him to do a lot,” Garrett said of Lee practicing this week.
First-year head coach Anthony Lynn is no stranger to the Cowboys, having served as running backs coach in Dallas in 2005-06 under Bill Parcells. Read
