The Dallas Cowboys’ bye week was much needed entering Sunday’s playoff game against the Green Bay Packers.
According to ESPN’s Todd Archer, all starters on both sides of the ball are healthy for the Cowboys. Left tackle Tyron Smith practiced Thursday after suffering a minor knee injury at the end of the season, and the Cowboys are as healthy as they’ve been all season.
“We’re healthier than we’ve been for most of the year,” coach Jason Garrett said. “That’s going to help our football team.”
The injury news hasn’t been as promising for the Green Bay Packers. Wide receiver Jordy Nelson is out for Sunday’s game with a rib injury, leaving Aaron Rodgers without his favorite target on the outside.
Dallas has home field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs, and they are favored to reach the Super Bowl for the first time in two decades.
