DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - The Cowboys will be short-handed for their Sunday afternoon tilt against the Jets, with multiple key contributors sidelined due to injury. 

Among the inactive players for Dallas will be both starting tackles in Tyron Smith and La'el Collins, as well as wide receiver Randall Cobb. 

With both Smith and Collins unable to go, Cameron Flemming and Brandon Knight are set to man the left and right tackle spots, respectively, while Cedrick Wilson will be inserted into the lineup to replace the injured Cobb. 

Smith, who was injured in the waning moments of the 12-10 Sunday night loss to the Saints, also missed the team's loss to the Packers last Sunday. 

Collins meanwhile, is dealing with a knee injury he suffered in the Green Bay game. Knight replaced Collins in that game and performed well against one of the better pass rushes in football. 

In good news for Dallas, Antwaun Woods looks set to return to the lineup for the first time since he was forced to leave the game against the Washington Redskins in week two. 

Linebacker Leighton Vander Esch will also suit up for the Cowboys on Sunday after he was listed as questionable during the week while battling a case of Vertigo.

The Cowboys are set to kick off at 3:25 pm CT on CBS. You can listen to the game live on 105.3 The Fan.
