DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - During his appearance with the GBAG Nation on 105.3 The Fan Friday, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones couldn't say whether they would have defensive end Randy Gregory (concussion) or safety Xavier Woods (hamstring) for their home opener against the Giants on Sunday. 

Things became more clear when the final injury came out on Friday for Woods as he was ruled out for the prime time matchup.

Gregory's status appeared to be heading in the right direction after he cleared the concussion protocol and was a limited participant in practice Friday. However, the Cowboys listed the defensive end as "doubtful" for Sunday. 

Prior to Jerry Jones saying on 105.3 The Fan Friday morning that Gregory has a better chance to play than Woods, Mike Fisher reported that the Cowboys were expecting to be without the pass rusher. A short time later, head coach Jason Garrett muddied the water as he announced during his press conference with the media that Gregory had cleared the concussion protocol and would practice Friday. 

Gregory suffered a concussion in the second quarter of the Cowboys loss to the Carolina Panthers in week 1.
