ARLINGTON, Texas -- New York Giants safety Kenny Phillips (knee) will play tonight, but nickel cornerback Kevin Dockery (hamstring) will be out for the second consecutive week. Undrafted rookie Bruce Johnson will once again replace Dockery, so look for the Cowboys to try to create a mismatch with whomever they line up in the slot.
Here are the other inactives for the Giants: RB Danny Ware, CB Aaron Ross, T Adam Koets, T Guy Whimper, WR Hakeem Nicks, LB Clint Sintim, DL Chris Canty.
Inactives for the Cowboys: QB Stephen McGee (emergency), S Mike Hamlin, LB Jason Williams, G Montrae Holland, C/G Duke Preston, T Pat McQuistan, WR Kevin Ogletree, LB Curtis Johnson.
In other news, five security guards in dark suits are guarding the Cowboys star at midfield. The star is covered with green turf, so I'm sure there will be a ceremony before the game. Owner Jerry Jones is spending time with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell on the field right now. Looks like they were both just looking up at the scoreboard. I think it's safe tonight with Jeff Feagles in the house.
