Week 14 Injury Roundup: Eagles @ Cowboys

As the team announced earlier today, the Eagles will be without two key starters as they head into Dallas for what is sure to be a crucial revenge match against the Cowboys. Winston Justice's hyperextended knee will keep him at home on the couch, leaving King Dunlap to start in his place. Look for Jason Garrett to exploit Michael Vick's blind side by attacking the right side of our line. DeMarcus Ware is currently ranked seventh in the NFL with 9.5 sacks this season, so he'll be one to watch.

Asante Samuel will also remain in Philadelphia, as his knee sprain that has caused him to miss the past two games experienced a setback on Friday. Joselio Hanson will start in Samuel's place (with Trevard Lindley working the nickel spot), but he could be outmatched by the speed of Miles Austin. Look for Quintin Mikell and Nate Allen to have their hands full against the Cowboys' passing attack, which currently ranks fifth in the NFL in yards per game.

Michael Vick, who bruised a quad against the Texans last week, is back to 100% after a full week of practice. Riley Cooper and Juqua Parker, who missed time due to hip and knee injuries, also used their ten-day break between games to fully recover and will be active tomorrow night.

On the Cowboys side of the ball, Marion Barber missed the entire week of practice with a calf injury and will be replaced by Felix Jones and Tashard Choice in the lineup. Tony Romo is, of course, out while he recovers from a broken collarbone. Starting safety Gerald Sensabaugh is listed as questionable, but will likely be a game-time decision. If he can't go, look for rookie Barry Church to get his first NFL start.

Rookie Dez Bryant shuffled off to IR with a broken ankle last week, so Kevin Ogletree and Sam Hurd will round out the Cowboys depth at wide receiver. Just to give you an idea of how badly Dallas is hurting in that department, Hurd's stats over the last 28 games have been 14 catches for 184 yards and a touchdown. Ogletree has only appeared in five games so far this season and has yet to make a single catch. Sounds like Jon Kitna will be relying heavily on Miles Austin and Roy Williams for this matchup.
