Cousins, starters expected to play for Redskins at Cowboys

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins is expected to start Sunday's regular-season finale at Dallas, though coach Jay Gruden wouldn't say how much his top players will stay in the game.

Gruden said after practice Thursday that ''all our guys are starting,'' and added that ''how I substitute throughout the course of the game will be dependent on how we're doing health-wise and the situation of the game.''

The Redskins (8-7) clinched the NFC East title and will host a wild-card round game, no matter what happens Sunday. The Cowboys (4-11) are in last place.

Washington left tackle Trent Williams was limited in practice Thursday because of knee and foot problems. Running back Matt Jones (hip), safety Dashon Goldson (shoulder, rib) and cornerback Quinton Dunbar (thigh muscle) did not practice.
