IRVING, Texas – Figuring out the Cowboys’ 46-man roster for Sunday’s game at Atlanta should not be too difficult.

Five players are expected to miss the game because of injuries: Dan Connor, Phil Costa, Matt Johnson, Sean Lissemore and DeMarco Murray.

That leaves two spots.

Andre Holmes was inactive last week as the Cowboys had Cole Beasley as the fifth wide receiver. Beasley can return punts with Dwayne Harris. He can play the slot. He has a role.

The other spit could come down to safety Charlie Peprah again. With the way the defense played against the New York Giants last week, there is no need to alter the lineup this week against another explosive offense in Atlanta.
