WHEN: Sunday, 3:15 p.m. (CDT)
WHERE: Texas Stadium, Irving, Texas

Two of the three Cowboys who were out last week are out again - starting strong safety Roy Williams (forearm), and starting fullback Deon Anderson (knee). Also out is starting left guard Kyle Kosier who re-injured his foot against the Packers. Only one player is listed as questionable, and that's backup nose tackle Tank Johnson, who sprained his ankle against the Packers, practicing on a limited basis Wednesday and Friday, but not practicing at all on Thursday. The four other Cowboys on the injury report figure to play, all being listed as probable - backup wide receiver Sam Hurd (ankle), backup linebacker Anthony Spencer (knee), starting tight end Jason Witten (shoulder) and backup safety Pat Watkins (neck), who will start in place of Williams.

As previously mentioned, Taylor will be out with a calf injury. As for other injured Redskins, rookie wide receiver Malcolm Kelly (ankle) is listed as doubtful after not practicing Thursday and Friday and likely won't play. Two players are questionable after limited practice participation - backup tackle Stephon Heyer (ankle) and starting linebacker Marcus Washington (hamstring). If Heyer plays, chances are it will only be a backup, with Jon Jansen taking his place. Backup cornerback Fred Smoot (hip), starting fullback Mike Sellers (thigh) and backup defensive tackle Anthony Montgomery (missed practice for non-injury reasons) are listed as probable.
