New DE Ryan Davis Inactive For Week 2; Orlando Scandrick To Play

LANDOVER, Md. – Ryan Davis won't be active during his first game with the Cowboys.

It's been less than a week since the veteran defensive end joined the roster, and the Cowboys decided that wasn't enough time to merit an active roster spot.

Davis headlined the team's list of seven inactives Sunday morning, along with Tony Romo, Mark Nzeocha, Charles Tapper, Darius Jackson, Kavon Frazier and Ron Leary.

Just like last week, the majority of the inactives are injury-related. Romo is still recovering from his mid-August back injury, while Nzeocha and Tapper have also been absent for the past month with injuries. Leary practiced during the week, but has been working his way back from a groin strain.

Jackson and Frazier are healthy scratches, as the two rookies are too far down the depth chart to merit roster spots.

With Davis inactive, the Cowboys will look to the same cast of defensive linemen to provide a pass rush against the Redskins. Their current options at defensive end are Benson Mayowa, Jack Crawford and David Irving – with Kyle Wilber serving as a rusher in some situations.

The Cowboys sacked Eli Manning twice last week – though it's worth noting one of those came from Orlando Scandrick.

Speaking of Scandrick, the veteran corner will play Sunday after a week of speculation about his health. Scandrick tweaked his hamstring during the loss to the Giants, but he participated in practice during the week and was cleared to play after testing his leg on Sunday morning.
