TEXAS, Sporting Alert – The following are the inactive players for the Thanksgiving Day NFL matchup involving the Carolina Panthers and the Dallas Cowboys.
Among the inactive players for Carolina on the day are wide receiver Kevin Norwood and running backs Brandon Wegher and Cameron Artis-Payne.
In the meantime, receiver Ted Ginn is listed as active.
Meanwhile, Dez Bryant and Darren McFadden are both active for the Dallas Cowboys today.
Bryant is good to go despite a foot injury, while McFadden has shaken off a groin injury to be active.
These two players will be very important for Dallas.
The Panthers are undefeated and are on a ten game winning streak and head into this game as 1.5-point favourites, according to Oddshark.
The Cowboys (3-7) recently broke a seven skid with a win at the Miami Dolphins on Sunday and with Tony Romo back in the lineup, the men’s from Dallas are hoping to win back-to-back games for the first-time since the start of the season.
If they are able to achieve this feat, the NFC East side would be the first team to hand the Panthers a defeat this season.
Lots of attention will be on the NFC leaders Panthers quarterback Cam Newton to see if he will rip apart another defensive line, as well as on Romo to see if he can lead the Cowboys to another win.
Cornerback Morris Claiborne is among the inactive players for Dallas.
Morris will miss his second-consecutive game as he continues to deal with a hamstring injury.
This meanwhile, Byron Jones will make his second career start at cornerback in place of Claiborne.
Cowboys Inactives: Trey Williams, Brice Butler, Geoff Swaim, Ronald Leary, Ryan Russell, Mark Nzeocha, Morris Claiborne
Panthers Inactives: WR Kevin Norwood, RB Brandon Wegher, RB Cameron Artis-Payne, CB Charles Tillman, WR Philly Brown, DE Ryan Delaire, LS Danny Aiken.
