Inactives: R. McClain and Romo Both Active For JAX; T. Crawford Out

LONDON – Rolando McClain and Tony Romo will both be active when the Cowboys kick off against Jacksonville on Sunday.

The Cowboys released their full list of inactives 90 minutes prior to kickoff on a chilly night at Wembley Stadium. The seven inactive players are Dustin Vaughan, Jakar Hamilton, Tim Dobbins, Davon Coleman, Tony Hills, Donald Hawkins and Tyrone Crawford.

Romo's participation was expected, as he practiced on both Thursday and Friday after returning from two broken transverse processes in his back, suffered on Oct. 27. McClain's availability comes as a bit more of a surprise, as he has not practiced at all this week after injuring his knee in the loss to Arizona on Nov. 2.

It remains to be seen how much the Cowboys will use McClain, given his absence all week. With Dobbins among the inactives, the Cowboys will carry six linebackers for this game, and Anthony Hitchens is expected to start and wear the defensive headset at middle linebacker.

Nick Hayden is also active for the game after he was limited by a shoulder injury during the week. With Tyrone Crawford sitting out, expect Jack Crawford to see some snaps at defensive tackle alongside Hayden, Henry Melton and Terrell McClain.

The Cowboys' offensive line will also be at full strength for the first time since Oct. 12. Doug Free, who missed three games with a fractured foot, and Ronald Leary, who missed last week with a groin injury, are both active and expected to start.
