Considering the extremely physical nature of football, injuries are a big deal in the NFL.

Here’s a breakdown from this week’s injury reports as the 5-8 Jacksonville Jaguars prepare to face the 10-3 Dallas Cowboys.

Brandon Scherff (abdomen), Darious Williams (abdomen), Andrew Wingard (shoulder), and Travon Walker (ankle) all popped up on the injury report this week. Fortunately, Walker is the only player in jeopardy of missing the Cowboys game, as he’s the only Jaguars player who didn't practice at all this week.

Walker does have a non-zero chance to play, though.

If Walker can’t go, Jacksonville will likely deploy a rotation including K’Lavon Chaisson, Dawuane Smoot, and Arden Key at outside linebacker across from Josh Allen.

Meanwhile, Andre Cisco (shoulder) and Chad Muma (ankle) are expected to return to the starting lineup. Trevor Lawrence (toe) was limited in practice out of precaution.

Jake Ferguson (concussion) is the only Cowboys player ruled out for Sunday. The rookie tight end has 16 catches for 139 yards and two scores this season. His absence may force Dallas into more 11 personnel (three wide receiver) looks, as opposed to keeping multiple tight ends on the field.

The Cowboys will also be welcoming former All-Pro tackle Tyson Smith (hamstring) back from injured reserve. He’s expected to start at right tackle after Terence Steele tore his ACL last week. First-round rookie Tyler Smith will continue to be Dak Prescott’s blindside protecter.
