Pregame news and notes
By Calvin Watkins
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware is wearing a soft cast over a left wrist that has a fracture.
The Giants have several lineup changes for the game. Former Cowboy Chris Canty is starting over Fred Robbins at defensive end, Mathias Kiwanuka will start over Osi Umenyiora at the other end spot. Jonathan Goff starts at middle linebacker over Chase Blackburn and C.C. Brown is the starting strong safety over Michael Johnson.
Now the Giants inactives: WR Ramses Barden, S Michael Johnson, RB D.J. Ware, DB D.J. Johnson, TE Travis Beckum, T Adam Koets, T Guy Whimper and WR Sinorice Moss.
For the Cowboys: Stephen McGee is the third quarterback. S Ken Hamlin, CB Cletis Gordon, LB Jason Williams, G Montrae Holland, C Duke Preston, T Marc Colombo and LB Curtis Johnson are inactive today. No lineup changes for the Cowboys.
Jesse Holley, the practice squad wide receiver, who earned a spot on the team through that Michael Irvin reality show, is here. Holley came on his own dime because he has family from the New York-New Jersey area.
Before the game, Holley was catching passes from Tony Romo.
