Dallas Cowboys WR Randall Cobb (hip, back), OT La'el Collins (knee) and OT Tyron Smith (ankle) were unable to practice all week but are listed as questionable for Week 6 versus the New York Jets.

WR Tavon Austin (shin), WR Michael Gallup (knee), OG Zack Martin (back), RB Tony Pollard (knee, ankle), LB Leighton Vander Esch (illness) and DT Antwaun Woods (knee) were full participants in practice Friday and have also been taken off the injury report.
