— Receiver Michael Gallup is on injured reserve after suffering a calf injury against the Buccaneers.

— Defensive end Randy Gregory was placed on the NFL’s COVID-19 reserve list on Tuesday.

— Defensive line coach Leon Lett was carted off with a leg injury in practice that required surgery on Wednesday.

— Defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence suffered a fractured foot in practice on Wednesday and is out 6-to-8 weeks.

— Safety Donovan Wilson re-aggravated a groin injury and has not practiced all week.


— Safety Damontae Kazee suffered a thigh injury in practice on Wednesday and did not practice Thursday.

Wilson and Kazee’s status will be determined on Saturday.

Nskehke, an eight-year veteran who signed with the Cowboys as a free agent in the offseason as the primary swing tackle, was excited to finally get a chance to play for his hometown team. He was likely going to start in place of Collins against the Chargers. Instead, Terence Steele will now start at right tackle with Brandon Knight serving as the primary backup.
