Jeffery was limited in practice this week with an ankle issue and is listed as questionable. Now it's official that he will.

Fournette, the Jaguars first round draft pick this season, has missed two games this season, one for breaking a team rule.

Eagles cornerback Ronald Darby is active after missing eight games because of a dislocated ankle sustained in the opener.

The Eagles added veteran offensive tackle Will Beatty and linebacker Dannell Ellerbe during the week, but both players are inactive for their first games with the Eagles.

The Eagles' inactives are Beatty, Ellerbe, Smallwood, wide receiver Shelton Gibson, defensive end Steven Means, defensive tackle Elijah Qualls, and quarterback Nate Sudfeld.

Despite the absence of suspended Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott, plenty remains on the line as the Eagles seek to maintain the best record in the National Football League and continue to stretch their lead over the Cowboys - the second place team in the NFC East. Joe Walker remains the starting middle linebacker. It's the second-straight week Dallas must make do without its All-Pro tackle, who is battling groin and back injuries.

The Cowboys have the NFL's leader in sacks, Demarcus Lawrence with 11.5 on the season.

Interestingly, the Cowboys were steamrolled by the Atlanta Falcons last week as they were without Sean Lee, Tyron Smith, and Ezekiel Elliott, all players who play the same positions as the three key Eagles losses. After safety Jeff Heath filled in for the rest of the 49ers game, kicker Mike Nugent was signed.
