Chidobe Awuzie – As if the Dallas Cowboys secondary wasn’t already short enough, here is an injury making the secondary even shorter. Awuzie has had to step up and shut down for the cowboys defense this year. Awuzie has been ruled for Monday night’s game due to a hamstring injury.
Nolan Carroll – Carroll had a rough go of it vs. Denver last Sunday night. He was one of the many Cowboys defender that could NOT tackle. He played like an Avg. DB1 in week one but couldn’t perform as so in week 2. He left the game after suffering a concussion, and he has also been ruled out for Monday night’s matchup for vs. Arizona.
Brice Butler – Butler has been limited all week with an ankle sprain. He was a small but valuable impact player all 2016 (16 rec, 219 yards, 3 TD , and 11 FD). He has already made an impact with an awesome diving catch in week 1, but he is listed as questionable for Mondays night’s game..
Terrence Williams – Williams has already made an obvious impact in the 2017 season. He is a big “move the chains” type of WR and that’s exactly what he has done with 7 out of 10 of his catches this season. He was limited in Saturday’s practice and has officially been ruled questionable for Monday’s game.
Stephen Paea – Has been helping with depth all year at DT. He has racked up .5 sack and 3 qb hurries. He has not practiced all week with a knee injury and is questionable to play Monday.
Orlando Scandrick – He practiced fully on Saturday and it seems like he will play Monday night. No official word has been given out yet, but it is sure looking like he will play. If Scandrick doesn’t play, there will be a major shortage at CB.
Demarcus Lawrence – So far on the year he has achieved 12 tackles, 3.5 sacks, and a FF. Going into the Arizona game, I don’t see him slowing down at all. Expect to see at least 1 sack and plenty of stuffs from him on Monday night.
Jaylon Smith – Smith will be entering the stadium where his career was almost taken from him. This will be a week that I think we will get to see even more improvement from Smith. Expect him to add on to his 18 tackles and FF this Monday vs. Arizona.
Sean Lee - let me be the first to say his game was at its lowest last Sunday, and it seemed like he had forgot all his form for tackling. He is a guy that is easy to forget the past and to step up and be even better next time, as he has proven this true so many times. Expect for Lee to have a huge bounceback game on Monday night in the desert.
Dez Bryant – Cowboys Nation should not be worried about Dez and we should remember how great of a WR he is. As we can see, he will have yet another tough matchup this week in Arizona vs. one of the leagues CB’s, Patrick Peterson. Expect to see him get something done Monday night.
Orlando Scandrick – There’s no word yet on his injury but it’s looking good for Cowboys Nation and for Scandrick. He seems to be working fine in practice and looks like he will be ready to go on Monday. We will definitely need him now that Awuzie and Carroll have been ruled out of Monday night’s game.
Zeke Elliott – Zeke had a tough go of it in Denver with 9 carries for 8 yards. He also had a “lack of effort” on a Dak Prescott INT. The media was on him all week about the lack of effort. From what I’ve seen, Elliott looks ready to come back into the next week and put on a show in Arizona.
