Raiders vs Cowboys Wednesday injury report: Cowboys without starting cornerback, middle linebacker

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

The final injury report for the Raiders vs Cowboys game Thursday is out. This week the more interesting statuses come from the Cowboys side of the ball. Their already struggling defense will be without two key starters -- cornerback Morris Claiborne and middle linebacker Sean Lee.

Claiborne was the team's top draft pick two seasons ago. He was the guy who supplanted Mike Jenkins in Dallas.

Sean Lee was having an All Pro caliber season before he went out with injury two weeks ago. He is a vital part of the that Cowboys defense and his absence makes for some pretty good news for the Raiders.

The Raiders will be without Denarius Moore, Jason Hunter, and Tyvon Branch once again. All three starters. Branch has been out since week two and is expected to be back by next week. Moore and Hunter are now going on two weeks out with injuries. Moore will be replaced by Andre Holmes and Hunter is replaced by a committee of defensive linemen.

There are a lot of players questionable for the Raiders this week. Seven players to be exact. Dennis Allen has said Mychal Rivera, Mike Jenkins, and Darren McFadden all should play. I would expect most of them to play, actually.
