Injury Reports Dallas Cowboys
The Cowboys will be without linebacker Leighton Vander Esch, who has been declared out with a neck injury. Two of their key players, running back Tony Pollard and linebacker Micah Parsons, are listed as questionable. Pollard, on the other hand, did not practice all week, while Parsons was only a limited participant. Both could get some playing time if they show up in better shape for the game.
Tony Pollard is one of the fantasy football MVP frontrunners this year, but the Cowboys’ star running back could miss Week 17’s Thursday Night Football game against the Titans. Pollard’s status is unknown due to a thigh injury, so fantasy football owners should have a backup plan ready in case Pollard is unable to play on TNF.
Pollard did not practice on Wednesday but is listed as “questionable” for the game on Thursday. At this point, he should be considered a true game-time decision, though some reports suggest that he’s been held out for “rest” rather than legitimate injury concerns.
- RB Tony Pollard – Questionable
- LB Micah Parsons – Questionable
- LB Leighton Vander Esch (neck) – Out

Injury Reports Titans
The Titans have the most injured players in the NFL, and they will rest some of their starters because this game has no bearing on their league standings.
Based on the long list of players who have been ruled out, they have decided to rest their injured players in order to prepare for the more important game next week, rather than trying to snap a five-game losing streak and boost morale.
The Titans will take the field with a significantly reduced lineup, with quarterback Ryan Tannehill among the eight players listed as out, and three others listed as questionable.
- RB Derrick Henry – Doubtful
- CB Kristian Fulton – Doubtful
- OLB Denico Autry – Doubtful
- QB Ryan Tannehill – Out
- DL Jeffery Simmons – Out
- T Nicholas Petit-Frere – Out
- S Amani Hooker – Out
- OLB Bud Dupree – Out
- LB Zach Cunningham – Out
- LB Dylan Cole – Out
- DB Josh Thompson – Out
