After a week of nagging injuries for the pair of star wide receivers, CeeDee Lamb and Amari Cooper are active alongside quarterback Dak Prescott, making his return after a week off due to injury in the Minnesota win.

Dallas only has four inactives, the biggest being left tackle Tyron Smith who injured his ankle against the Vikings. Right tackle La’el Collins is back at his starting spot versus Denver while backup Terence Steele shifted to the left side, preparing to start in Smith’s absence.

With Prescott back, third-string quarterback Will Grier is inactive while wide receiver Simi Fehoko and safety Israel Mukuamu won’t see the field for at least another week.

The Broncos have had a carousel of injuries and COVID issues, with quarterback Drew Lock in the protocol so starter Teddy Bridgewater will be without a serviceable backup. Starting left tackle Garrett Bolles is out, similar to Dallas’ loss at the position while outside linebacker Malik Reed is also inactive for the contest.
