Injury Expectations | Thursday Update | Week 6

A review of the midweek practice participation report

KEY Thursday MEDIA UPDATES

***There are five injury situations in need of Friday clarity: Dez Bryant again did limited individual work but remains a hopeful game-time decision. Eddie Lacy told reporters he was still unsure whether he could play after two consecutive limited practices. Theo Riddick has yet to be seen in practice or in the locker room. Rashad Jennings was very positive in the locker room but still not cleared for full practice. And Sammie Coates continues to heal from a painful hand laceration.

***Kelvin Benjamin (knee), Mark Ingram (illness), and Andrew Luck (shoulder) were added to the injury report today. All three are expected to play this weekend.


Mid-WEEK PRACTICE PARTICIPATION REPORT AND EARLY EXPECTATIONS

The Wednesday and Thursday practice participation reports are our first chance to see which players each NFL team are limiting in practice after the previous week's games. Players limited in mid-week practice aren't necessarily in danger of missing that week's game. But they all need to be watched closely.
