Inactives: Sims, Claiborne Out; Williams To Play


LANDOVER, Md. – The Cowboys most recently hampered by hamstring injuries will be able to play Sunday.

The injury that's affected numerous Cowboys this season won't stop Terrance Williams and Bruce Carter from playing against the Redskins. Both players were limited at different points this week with hamstring injuries, but they're both active Sunday.

Williams and defensive end Jarius Wynn both came in questionable but will be ready to go. The same can't be said for Sean Lee and Dwayne Harris, who were both ruled out Friday, or Morris Claiborne and Ernie Sims, who were doubtful entering the weekend and will be inactive.

Safety Jakar Hamilton, defensive end Martez Wilson and tackle Darrion Weems make up the rest of the team's inactives list.


The Cowboys prepared to be without Harris this weekend and signed return specialist Micheal Spurlock early this week. He will be active, as well as defensive tackle Frank Kearse, who was also signed this week.

Without Lee or Sims, rookie linebacker DeVonte Holloman is expected to make his first start at middle linebacker, sandwiched between outside linebackers Kyle Wilber and Carter.
