We’ve got a bit of a game in store today - one you’ll be able to follow live on AS USA - as the Dallas Cowboys are on the road for a match-up against the Kansas City Chiefs. Dak Prescott vs Patrick Mahomes is just one of the narratives that is filling the airwaves and bars, and we can’t wait to see how it all plays out.

Cowboys at Chiefs: injury reports

The other weekly dilemma, however, both for fans and coaches alike, is around which players may be missing through injury or some other reason. That’s why we’ve been keeping an ear close to the ground and our eyes on all the official wires to bring you the latest from both camps.

Dallas Cowboys: injury report Week 11

Head coach Mike McCarthy was hopeful on Thursday that Tyron Smith (left tackle) would be back in time for this huge game after he had some limited participation in practice. But with doubts over his ankle issue, his appearance is now sitting as questionable. Rookie Kelvin Joseph (cornerback), took no part in the sessions this week due to personal reasons, and has not travelled with the team. Deante Burton has been moved up, as has Kyron Brown.

Amari Cooper (wide receiver) is definitely out of Sunday's game after being placed on the Reserve/covid-19 list.

In more positive news, Greg Zuerlein (kicker) was activated from the Reserve/covid-19 list and went through full practice on Thursday and Friday.

Here’s the complete list:

Kansas City Chiefs: injury report Week 11

Mike Remmers (right tackle) remains out which points to a likely starting position for Andrew Wylie again. Lucas Niang has also being ruled out of that role after a rib knock.

Dicaprio Bootle is another who could benefit and may be boosted from the practice squad if L’Jarius Sneed (cornerback) can’t recover in time. The 24-year old still only managed limited practice this week with a knee injury, a change from the ankle and wrist issues from last week.

A bigger doubt for Sunday surrounds Marcus Kemp (wide receiver) who was placed on the Reserve/covid-19 list and looks like he'll be out, with Asmani Watts questionable for an illness. Derrick Nnadi (defensive tackle) though should be ready in time for the Cowboys but did need some treatment for a hip injury.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire (running back) is questionable with a knee injuring hampering his hopes while Kyle Long (offensive lineman) is PUP.

Here’s the complete list:
