Thursday Night Football Injury Report
Which team is healthier? Cowboys (barely)
Dallas has some injuries on the defensive side with linebacker Leighton Vander Esch ruled out with his neck injury, along with safety Jeff Heath (shoulder) and defensive lineman Antwaun Woods (knee).
Also of note: Running back Tony Pollard was downgraded on Tuesday with an ankle injury and is listed as questionable. His potential absence would leave Ezekiel Elliott with the whole workload in the backfield. Meanwhile, Randall Cobb is dealing with an illness, but is expected to play.
The Bears have ruled out four players: Linebacker Danny Trevathan (elbow), tight end Ben Braunecker (concussion), offensive lineman Bobby Massie (ankle) and wide receiver Taylor Gabriel (concussion) while cornerback Prince Amukamara (hamstring) is doubtful. — Justin Bailey
