WR Matthews Questionable Vs. Dallas

Wide receiver Jordan Matthews practiced on Friday for the first time this week and is questionable with an ankle injury for Sunday's season finale against the Cowboys, per head coach Doug Pederson.

"We got to see," Matthews said of his availability. "I think that's the biggest thing. I don't make those decisions. At the end of the day, I just go out and try to do my job. We'll see what the coaches say. I really don't know right now."

Matthews originally suffered the injury November 28 against the Green Bay Packers. He missed the following game against Cincinnati, but returned to catch eight passes for 79 yards against the Redskins in Week 14. In last Thursday's win over the Giants, Matthews had two catches for 12 yards and played just 70 percent of the team's offensive snaps (he's played 80 percent for the season).

The only player at this point who will likely miss Sunday's game due to injury is guard Allen Barbre, who is doubtful with a hamstring injury.

If Barbre is inactive, Stefen Wisniewski will start at left guard. Rookie Isaac Seumalo is questionable with an ankle injury, but Pederson said that the Eagles want to get him some reps at guard. Tackle Halapoulivaati Vaitai is also questionable, but is set to be active for the first time since suffering the knee injury back in Week 11 at Seattle.

Linebacker Jordan Hicks is also questionable with an ankle injury, but practiced all week. Fellow linebacker Mychal Kendricks was added to the injury report on Friday as questionable with a quad injury. Defensive end Brandon Graham missed Friday's practice, but not due to injury.

Well, We Know The Cowboys' Inactive List For Sunday

And it doesn't include either quarterback Dak Prescott or running back Ezekiel Elliott.

The Cowboys announced that seven players are out for Sunday's game due to injury: cornerback Morris Claiborne (groin), defensive end Tyrone Crawford (shoulder/hamstring), linebacker Justin Durant (elbow), defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence (back), defensive tackle Terrell McLain (ankle), tackle Tyron Smith (knee) and defensive tackle Cedric Thornton (ankle).

Dallas added running back Darren McFadden to the injury report with an illness. He did not practice on Friday and is questionable for the game. If the Cowboys rest Elliott, McFadden is expected to receive a majority of the reps in the backfield.
