Out: S Colt Anderson (knee), G Julian Vandervelde (back)
Questionable: S Earl Wolff (knee)
Probable: CB Brandon Boykin (hip), LB Trent Cole (hand), S Kurt Coleman (hamstring), T Lane Johnson (back), LB Mychal Kendricks (knee), G Evan Mathis (illness)
Anderson will sit out for a second straight week with a knee injury. Cary Williams played special teams last week to help account for his absence. We’ll see if he gets the call on kickoffs again this week.
Vandervelde’s absence is of note considering he is the backup to center Jason Kelce. Mathis, who is expected to play after sitting out Thursday because of illness, could be moved to center in an emergency situation.
Wolff was listed as a full participant in practice all week but it sounds like his knee is still giving him some trouble. Even if he is active, expect Patrick Chung to get the start opposite Nate Allen.
Most of the significant injury news lies on the Cowboys’ side of the ball.
Jason Garrett announced today that Tony Romo is officially out for this game after undergoing back surgery.
Standout pass-rusher DeMarcus Ware missed Friday’s practice due to a sore back and is listed as questionable. Linebacker Sean Lee (neck) is out for this game. Dez Bryant (back) was limited at practice on Friday but expects to play. He is probable.
