The Dallas Cowboys are set to take on the Green Bay Packers on the road in Sunday’s NFC Divisional Round matchup, and they have dealt with a plethora of injuries on the defensive side.
Linebacker Rolando McClain and defensive end Jeremy Mincey have been nursing concussions this week, but they appear to be headed back to the field as they both cleared concussion protocol and returned to practice on Friday.
Linebacker Anthony Hitchens and defensive tackle Terrell McClain missed practice again though, but the return of their best linebacker and a key defensive lineman will help strongly in the Cowboys’ efforts to stop the high-octane Packers offense.
