Whitehead Ruled Out For Sunday Due To Violation Of Team Rules

When the Cowboys take the field Sunday night against the New York Giants, they'll be without their primary kick returner.

The Cowboys announced Saturday that Lucky Whitehead did not travel with the team to New York and has been ruled out for Week 14 due to violation of team rules.

Whitehead has averaged 23.8 yards on 10 kickoff returns and 8.8 yards on 19 punt returns this season. The second-year wide receiver also has two catches for 40 yards and eight carries for 86 yards.

A possible replacement for Whitehead on punt returns is wide receiver Cole Beasley, who has seven fair catches this season.
