Facing Long Odds, A Win On Sunday Would Be Huge

WHAT: Dallas Cowboys (5-3) at New York Giants (6-1)
WHEN: Sunday, 3:15 p.m. (CST)
WHERE: Giants Stadium, East Rutherford, N. J.
TELEVISION: Fox (Joe Buck, Troy Aikman, and Pam Oliver)

Cowboys fans will probably have to wait until after the bye week for some good news on the injury front, although there are a few bright spots on the injury report for Sunday. Three players are listed as probable, none of whom played a full game last week - starting cornerback Anthony Henry (thigh), who left last week's game in the first quarter; backup outside linebacker Anthony Spencer, who returns after severely straining his hamstring against Arizona three weeks ago; and backup safety Pat Watkins (neck), who played only special teams last week. Probably the most high profile of the injuries is that of starting tight end Jason Witten (cracked rib), who is questionable to play after not practicing all week. Witten will likely be a game-time decision. While starting quarterback Tony Romo (broken finger), starting cornerback Terence Newman (abdomen), starting left guard Kyle Kosier (foot) and backup running back Felix Jones (hamstring) are again listed as out again, there is a good chance all could be back for the Nov. 16 Washington game following the bye.

The Giants injury report is a short one - only four players, either listed as out or probable. Out are starting outside linebacker Gerris Wilkinson (knee) and backup cornerback Kevin Dockery (back), neither of whom practiced all week. Probable are rookie backup linebacker Brian Kehl (toe) and starting defensive tackle Fred Robbins (hand).
