Cowboys Injury Report: Concern For Aldon Smith?

Matt Galatzan

The Dallas Cowboys have a tough week ahead of them, after losing two more starters along the offensive line due to injuries on Monday against the Arizona Cardinals. To make things worse, their most productive pass rusher, Aldon Smith, also appeared on the injury report on Thursday with a neck issue and was a nonparticipant in Thursday's practice. 

Smith leads the Cowboys with four sacks on the season and has exploded on to the scene for Dallas after not playing a down in the NFL for nearly five full seasons. 

The Washington Football Team also has its fair share of players appear on the injury report, however, including six players who were marked down as DNP's as well. Among the injured for Washington, which is coming off of a narrow 20-19 defeat at the hands of the division rival New York Giants, is rookie defensive end Chase Young, who was limited with a groin issue. 

The rookie is second on the team in sacks with 2.5 for the year, just half a sack behind veterans Ryan Kerrigan and Montez Sweat. He is also second on the team for tackles for loss behind sweat with 5.5
