The Cowboys will be without several key contributors on Sunday against the Bears, including star RB Ezekiel Elliott. Elliott being held out of Sunday’s game was predictable since he has not practiced all week and the Cowboys seemingly moving forward with caution with him. The Cowboys will enter a bye next week, so this gives Elliott an additional week to recover from his knee injury.
The following players have been deemed inactive for today’s game against the Chicago Bears:
#21 RB Ezekiel Elliott
#28 S Malik Hooker
#85 WR Noah Brown
#54 DE Sam Williams
#72 DT Trysten Hill
#15 QB Will Grier
#14 LB Jabril Cox
Rookie LB Damone Clark is active for today’s game and is set to make his professional debut. Clark has great upside in the eyes of the Cowboys’ coaching staff so it will be interesting to see what kind of role he plays in Dan Quinn’s defense this afternoon.
