The Dallas Cowboys are taking on the Minnesota Vikings today and will have to do so without some of their key players. Most noticeably the Cowboys will be with out defensive end DeMarcus Ware. He had played in 134 consecutive games before being injured but will now sit out for the third consecutive game.
The Cowboys will also be without wide receiver Miles Austin, safety J.J. Wilcox and cornerback Morris Claiborne.
Minnesota Vikings quarterback Josh Freeman will be inactive today. The Vikings are starting Christian Ponder at quarterback and that means Matt Cassel will serve as the back up.
Cowboys inactives: Miles Austin, DeMarcus Ware, Morris Claiborne, DeVonte Holloman, J.J. Wilcox, Andre Smith and Darrion Weems
