Cowboys inactives today vs. Bengals:
— Jon Machota (@jonmachota) September 18, 2022
For the second week to start his career, Cowboys wide receiver Jalen Tolbert is inactive for Dallas. Dennis Houston was active in Week 1, heavily thanks to his chemistry with quarterback Dak Prescott, but that’s of no value for the next few weeks.
The seven inactives for the Cowboys includes some big names. Prescott is on the list after the Joneses elected to keep him off the IR in hopes of a hasty return. Wide receiver Michael Gallup is close to a return but he’s the second receiver inactive for Dallas. Offensive lineman Connor McGovern was expected to be out after suffering an ankle injury against Tampa Bay.
On the defensive side, safety Jayron Kearse will sit with a knee injury he also suffered against the Buccaneers. Linebacker Jabril Cox and cornerback Nahshon Wright round out the list for the second week in a row.
RB Trayveon Williams
OL Max Scharping
OL Hakeem Adeniji
TE Devin Asiasi
DT Jay Tufele
Notes: OL D’Ante Smith is active in place of Adeniji, who was the backup swing tackle last week.
Also, WR Tee Higgins (concussion) and DT Josh Tupou (shin) are ACTIVE.
