The Dallas Cowboys will play the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday at Heinz Field and their first injury report of Week 10 shows that four players failed to practice on Wednesday.
Sitting out Wednesday’s practice were tackle Tyron Smith (back), guard Ronald Leary (concussion), safety Barry Church (forearm), and cornerback Morris Claiborne (groin).
Smith is expected to play Sunday against the Steelers as the Cowboys have been limiting him in practice for several weeks now. As for Leary, it’s hard to project if he’ll ultimately play against the Steelers as he left Sunday’s win against Cleveland Browns with a head injury. Both Church and Claiborne aren’t expected to play against the Steelers because of their injuries.
Limited on Wednesday for the Cowboys were defensive end Demarcus Lawrence (back/shoulder), tackle Chaz Green (foot) and linebacker Ryan Davis (hamstring). Green has missed the last four games with his foot injury.
Practicing fully on Wednesday for the Cowboys were wide receiver Dez Bryant (knee) and quarterback Tony Romo (back). While Romo is back practicing fully again, the Cowboys are expected to stick with rookie quarterback Dak Prescott as their starter against the Steelers.
The Cowboys enter Sundays game with a 7-1 record and have won their last seven games.
