Cowboys safety Jeff Heath is inactive Thursday after breaking his right thumb in last weekend’s win over the New York Giants.
Dallas defensive tackle Henry Melton is active, but the free agent from Chicago won’t start in his debut for the Cowboys.
The Dallas Cowboys will be without captain Sean Lee in Sunday’s NFC East Championship game against Philadelphia, but he’s not the only Dallas linebacker sidelined by injury.
The Cowboys secondary struggled to contain WR Hakeem Nicks when the teams played back in September. They won’t have the same problem on Sunday.
Inactive for the Cowboys are wide receiver Miles Austin, cornerback Chris Greenwood, guard David Arkin, center Phil Costa, tackle Darrion Weems, tight end Andre Smith and defensive end Caesar Rayford.
