EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- There are no surprises with the Dallas Cowboys' inactives: Jakar Hamilton, Sean Lee, Justin Durant, DeVonte Holloman, Darrion Weems, Andre Smith and Everett Dawkins. There is some good news for the Cowboys on the New York Giants' front: Hakeem Nicks is inactive.
Wilber moved to linebacker during the bye week from defensive end. He was an outside linebacker when the Cowboys ran a 3-4 last year.
J.J. Wilcox will return to the lineup but the Cowboys will use a rotation at the spot like they did against the Philadelphia Eagles. Jeff Heath worked with the first team during the week and the Cowboys could break out a three-safety look for their sub package with Barry Church moving closer to the line of scrimmage.
Nicks has an abdominal strain. He has yet to score a touchdown this season but he had five catches for 114 yards against the Cowboys in the season opener.
