Cowboys not resting as QB3 among Week 18 inactives vs Commanders

Cowboys not resting as QB3 among Week 18 inactives vs Commanders

While some teams are taking a cautious approach to to the regular season finale, the Dallas Cowboys appear to be going all out to end on a high note. Dallas appears prepared to keep quarterback Dak Prescott in for at least a substantial part of the game, as they did not activate QB3 Will Grier for the contest.

That said, they’re taking a patient approach with linebacker Leighton Vander-Esch and center Tyler Biadasz. Both are expected to return for the playoffs alongside defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins, who will come off IR.

Wide receiver KaVontae Turpin missed practice this week with an illness, but he’s taking the field as a captain in Week 18. The Pro Bowl returner will have another shot to take back a kick for a score after being inches away on multiple occasions.

On the other side, the eliminated Commanders are waving the white flag in their season finale. Multiple starters are out, including running back Brian Robinson Jr. and defensive lineman Jonathan Allen. While all quarterbacks are healthy, Sam Howell gets the nod for Washington. Here’s a look at the full list of inactives for Cowboys-Commanders.
