IRVING, Texas -- There are no surprises on the Cowboys’ injury report for Sunday’s game at Arizona.

Wide receiver Miles Austin (hamstring), nose tackle Josh Brent (knee), fullback Tony Fiammetta (illness), quarterback Jon Kitna (back) and running back Phillip Tanner (hamstring) did not practice all week and will not play against the Cardinals.

Cornerback Mike Jenkins is listed as questionable, but he will return for the first time since suffering a hamstring injury in the second half of the Oct. 30 loss at Philadelphia. Right guard Kyle Kosier is also questionable with a foot injury, but he will start his 12th straight game.

Punter Mat McBriar (foot), linebacker Sean Lee (wrist) and linebacker Bruce Carter (knee) are probable.

Brent’s absence will push Sean Lissemore into the backup role behind Jay Ratliff. Brent was inactive for the Eagles’ game and the Cowboys allowed 239 yards rushing, led by LeSean McCoy’s 185 yards. With Tanner out, the Cowboys will have only two tailbacks active: DeMarco Murray and Felix Jones.
