A slew of players are out for the Cowboys - backup wide receiver Sam Hurd (ankle, placed on IR), punter Mat McBriar (foot, placed on IR), change-of-pace running back Felix Jones (hamstring), starting left guard Kyle Kosier (foot), starting cornerback Terence Newman (abdomen), backup outside linebacker Anthony Spencer (hamstring) and backup safety Pat Watkins (neck). Watkins will sit despite having fully participated in practice all week. Nickel linebacker and special teams ace Kevin Burnett (calf) and starting quarterback Tony Romo (right pinkie finger) are listed as questionable. Those two questions will not be answered until game time. Backup safety Keith Davis (thumb), backup nose tackle Tank Johnson (ankle) and starting safety Roy Williams (forearm) are all listed as probable, as is Marcus Spears, who failed to practice on Friday because of an illness.
Three players are out for the Rams - backup wide receiver Drew Bennett (foot), backup cornerback Tye Hill (knee), and backup running back Antonio Pittman (lower leg). Starting left tackle Orlando Pace (thigh) is listed as questionable. Starting quarterback Marc Bulger (right finger), and rookie backup wide receiver Keenan Burton (knee) are listed as probable.
