FRISCO (105.3 The Fan) - The Dallas Cowboys will be without defensive linemen Tyrone Crawford (neck) and David Irving (ankle), as well as right guard Zack Martin when they take on the New York Giants Sunday. 

Dallas listed Crawford and Irving as being out on on the final injury report Friday and listed Martin and Tyron Smith as questionable. 

Earlier this week on 105.3 The Fan, Jerry Jones said the players that won't play "are going to be pretty obvious," meaning the ones that are injured. Jones said Martin, who's been dealing with a sprained MCL, will not be playing. When pressed about Demarcus Lawrence (shoulder) or any other player's chances of playing Sunday, Jones wouldn't get into it. 

After getting in a full practice on Thursday, Smith was limited in practice on Friday due to a lingering neck stinger. Cornerback Anthony Brown (back) and linebacker Sean Lee (hamstring) were also listed as limited participants in practice this week and are questionable for Sunday.

Quarterback Dak Prescott says he plans on taking every single snap in the game, while head coach Jason Garrett said backup Cooper Rush has not gotten any reps with the first team in practice this week. 

As for running back Ezekiel Elliott, The Fan's Mike Fisher reported that Elliott had been splitting first-team reps in practice with Rod Smith and Darius Jackson, leading to speculation that Elliott won't see much action against New York. 

The Cowboys will get a speed boost as wide receiver Tavon Austin was a full participant in this week's practices. Austin has missed the last nine games with a groin injury.
