Cowboys
Three players are out for the Cowboys - starting fullback Deon Anderson (knee), starting strong safety Roy Williams (forearm) and backup linebacker Anthony Spencer (knee). Anderson and Williams are out following surgical procedures this week but Spencer, who played Monday night after missing the opener, finds himself sitting out again after issues with his recently-scoped knee flared up in practice this week. Third receiver Sam Hurd is listed as questionable after returning to participate in a limited portion of practice this week from a high ankle sprain. The Cowboys will return one player to their starting lineup, guard Kyle Kosier, who recovered quickly from a hairline fracture in his foot and is listed as probable and expected to start. Also listed as probable are starting cornerback Terence Newman (groin), starting tight end Jason Witten (shoulder), and wide receivers Miles Austin (knee) and Isaiah Stanback (shoulder) - all fully participating in practice this week.

Packers
The Packers know one starter will not play Sunday night, safety Atari Bigby (hamstring), who will be replaced by Aaron Rouse. A slew of backups are listed as questionable - running back Korey Hall (knee), tight end Tory Humphrey (knee), receiver Ruvell Martin (finger), and guard Josh Sitton (knee). Several Packers starters are listed as probable: Starting running back Ryan Grant (hamstring), who practiced fully on Friday; starting center Scott Wells (back); starting cornerback Charles Woodson, expected to play despite not practicing at all with a toe injury; key pass rusher and defensive end Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila (knee) is expected to play despite declining practice participation all week; and starting left tackle Chad Clifton, who is nursing a knee injury.
