Throughout the week, the Dallas Cowboys had running back Ezekiel Elliott on the injury report after his awkward fall on top of a pylon in Week 5. Starting right tackle Tyron Smith is active after a scare on the injury report with neck injuries, considering his history in recent years, wearing the neck pad that he has ditched in 2021.

Cornerback Trevon Diggs missed two practices but is active as well while safety Donovan Wilson returns to the lineup for the first time since Week 1. The pair made their presence known late in the 2020 season and reunite on the field against New England.

There are five inactives for Dallas including quarterback Will Grier, wide receiver Simi Fehoko, defensive ends Dorance Armstrong and Bradlee Anae and safety Israel Mukuamu. The group has all been inactive for at least one game during the season, so it’s no surprise here.

New England will be without starting right guard Shaq Mason and a pair of reserve cornerbacks in Shaun Wade and Joejuan Williams. Mason is the most significant loss while the final three inactives will have little influence on Bill Belichick and his gameplan against the Cowboys.
