Cowboys | Dallas' Week 6 injury report (Fri Oct 11, 05:43 PM) - 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. LB Sean Lee (knee) did not practice Friday, Oct. 11, but was removed from the injury report. WR Amari Cooper (ankle, quad) and DL Tyrone Crawford (hip) were limited in practice all week but no longer appears on the injury report. 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.

Our View: If Cobb is out, that could shake free a few more targets for Michael Gallup or Jason Witten against the Jets.
