Thursday means it’s back to work for the Cowboys veterans who got to go easy on Wednesday. That alone slashes the injury report from ten names to four. And two of those players were also back at practice, too. Wideout Michael Gallup shook off the bug that kept him out a day, and safety Jayron Kearse’s toe seems to be an non-issue. Both participated in full.
Tyron Smith was held out once again as the club keeps a careful watch on his neck stinger. He has participated in walkthroughs, though, and head coach Mike McCarthy said that if he can participate in Saturday’s practice session, he’ll have a chance to play Week 9. Chuma Edoga was limited for the second straight day, but his listing now includes a knee designation as well as an ankle.
As for the Eagles, no major changes over the last 24 hours. Guard Sua Opeta was able to practice in full after being limited on Wednesday.
Here’s how both teams are shaping up ahead of Sunday’s showdown.
