With the game on Saturday, the normal work week from Week 16 forward has changed little for the Dallas Cowboys. Normally the first practice report hits Wednesday, but with one less day to prepare for the 13-1 Philadelphia Eagles, it hits Tuesday. The teams rehearsed, but injury reports are an estimate of what the level of participation would have been if they had gone out in the pads.
For the Cowboys, the biggest news is that linebacker Micah Parsons sat out with an illness. Clearly battered over the past several weeks from playing most of his snaps as a pass rusher, now the club’s leading defender is suffering from some sort of cold sore. Though that pales in comparison to what the Eagles are dealing with, as their star quarterback Jalen Hurts is dealing with a sprained shoulder.

If Hurts misses out, Gardner Minshew will replace him, which will be interesting considering how Dak Prescott missed the first matchup between the rivals. Here’s a look at who else is in danger of missing out on the action on Christmas Eve.
