Dallas Cowboys: injury report Week 15

Dallas Cowboys defensive tackles Osa Odighizuwa and Trysten Hill joined the reserve/covid-19 list on Saturday ensuring that they will both miss the trip for the Big Apple game.

Odighizuwa, 23, has 30 tackles, 10 quarterback hits and two sacks in 13 games (12 starts). He was the Cowboys' third-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. Hill, 23, has nine tackles and one quarterback hit in four games this season.

Dallas elevated defensive tackle Justin Hamilton, running back JaQuan Hardy and safety Darian Thompson from the practice squad to the active roster. Hamilton and Thompson are covid-19 replacements.

New York Giants: injury report Week 15

It was reported on Thursday that New York Giants cornerback Adoree' Jackson had tested positive for covid-19. Jackson was expected to miss a third straight game Sunday with a quad injury anyway. The problem is that his replacement in the past two games, Aaron Robinson, also tested positive and is out for the Dallas game.

As we've been advised, both Jackson and Robinson remain unvaccinated. Jackson became the sixth Giants player to test positive this week and the seventh to go on the reserve/covid-19 list. Safety Xavier McKinney, also unvaxxed, was placed on the list as a high-risk close contact, a move that would not be warranted if he had been vaccinated.

Jackson joined offensive lineman Wes Martin, linebackers Oshane Ximines and Cam Brown, wide receivers John Ross and Kadarius Toney, and Robinson as those who have tested positive. Martin is expected to come out of protocols soon. The team previously said that they expected McKinney to test out of the protocols before today's big clash.

Jackson, 26, has an interception and seven passes defensed to go with 56 tackles in 11 games (all starts) this season. It's his first season in New York after spending the first four seasons in Tennessee. He was taken No. 18 overall in the 2017 draft by the Titans.
