This Game Will Have Big Impact On Playoff Future

WHAT: New York Giants (11-2) vs. Dallas Cowboys (8-5
WHEN: Sunday, 7:15 p.m. (CST)
WHERE: Texas Stadium, Irving, Texas
TELEVISION: NBC (Al Michaels and John Madden)

While there seem to be some injured egos in the Cowboys locker room, the actual injury report is quite lengthy. Only two players are listed as out, though - cornerback Adam Jones (neck) and left guard Montrae Holland (ankle). Listed as questionable are backup receiver Miles Austin (knee) and starting running back Marion Barber (calf/toe), who only had limited participation in practice on Friday after missing the rest of the week. Phillips has maintained Barber will likely be a game-time decision. Otherwise, the Cowboys seem to have dodged the injury bullet. Starting safeties Keith Davis (knee) and Ken Hamlin (ankle), starting linebacker Bradie James (ankle), backup corner Mike Jenkins (hamstring), long snapper L.P. Ladouceur (neck), starting nose tackle Jay Ratliff (concussion), backup linebacker Justin Rogers (illness), backup wide receiver Isaiah Stanback (shoulder), starting outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware (knee), starting wide receiver Roy Williams (foot), and starting tight end Jason Witten (ankle) are all listed as probable. Williams has not practiced all week and the Cowboys still are worrying some over their starting safeties.

Two players are out for the Giants - starting running back Brandon Jacobs (knee) and backup linebacker Jonathan Goff (hamstring). Backup wide receiver Domenik Hixon (ankle/foot) and starting defensive tackle Fred Robbins (shoulder) are listed as questionable. Backup running back Ahmad Bradshaw (neck), starting right tackle Kareem McKenzie (back), starting cornerback Aaron Ross (ankle) and starting defensive end Justin Tuck (lower leg) are all listed as probable.
