WHAT: Dallas Cowboys (4-2) vs. Seattle Seahawks (2-4)
WHEN: Sunday, Noon (CT)
WHERE: Cowboys Stadium, Arlington, Texas
TELEVISION: FOX (Dick Stockton and Charles Davis)
The one player the Cowboys are worried about not having Sunday is nose tackle Jay Ratliff, who is listed as questionable after suffering a knee sprain in Thursday's practice. There was no structural damage when Ratliff underwent an MRI, so the Cowboys will monitor his status over the weekend and see how he responds to treatment. The Cowboys know they will be without return man Allen Rossum (hamstring), who was injured on his first kickoff return last week. Running back Felix Jones will resume his kickoff duties in Rossum's absence. The other three players on the injury report - running back Marion Barber (thumb), outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware (foot) and safety Gerald Sensabaugh (thumb) - are all listed as probable and are expected to start.
Three players are out for the Seahawks - tackle Walter Jones (knee surgery) and linebacker Lofa Tatupu (pectoral injury) are out for the season after being placed on injured reserve this week. Backup safety C.J. Wallace will also miss the game with a hamstring injury. Backup tackle Sean Locklear is listed as doubtful with a high ankle sprain. Starting guard Rob Sims (ankle), starting quarterback Matt Hasselbeck (ribs) and starting defensive end Patrick Kerney (groin) are all listed as probable.
