Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin appears ready to play on Sunday.
Linebacker Justin Durant is another story.
Austin was a full participant in practice this week, increasing the likelihood that he will take the field for the first time since the Cowboys defeated the St. Louis Rams last month.
Austin has missed the past two games due to a hamstring issue. He is listed as probable on the final injury report.
Austin would re-join a receiving corps that is coming off a game in which three different pass-catchers had more than 100 yards receiving, including his replacement in the starting lineup, rookie Terrance Williams.
Durant worked out on a limited basis on Friday after missing all of Wednesday’s and Thursday’s workouts. He is listed as questionable on the injury report. He’s been dealing with a groin injury since the San Diego game. Durant missed last week’s game against Denver and Ernie Sims started in his place.
Safety Barry Church is listed as probable after practicing all week with an injured nose, suffered last week against Denver.
Wide receiver Dwayne Harris (hip) and defensive tackle Jason Hatcher (neck) have practiced this week on a limited basis and are probable.
Running back Lance Dunbar (hamstring) and defensive end Edgar Jones (groin) have not practiced all week and are listed as out.
Washington’s biggest question mark is nose tackle Chris Neild (calf). He is listed as doubtful and did not work out all week.
Linebacker Brandon Jenkins (ankle) and tight end Logan Paulsen (knee) are questionable. Both practiced on a limited basis this week.
Tight end Fred Davis (ankle), kicker Kai Forbath (groin), running back Alfred Morris (ribs) and tight end Jordan Reed (thigh) are probable after practicing all week.
