Nose guard Chris Neild and rookie linebacker Brandon Jenkins, two of the primary backups on defense for the Redskins, are out  because of injury.

Neild is dealing with a calf injury and Jenkins has a sprained right ankle.

The Cowboys are without running back and returner Lance Dunbar because of a hamstring injury.

Other Cowboys inactives include: CB Chris Greenwood, DE Edgar Jones, G David Arkin, C Phil Costa, T Darrion Weems, TE Andre  Smith.

Also inactive for Washington was backup running back Chris Thompson, who had been getting a chance as the primary punt returner. Joshua Morgan was set to take over that duty.
