Chargers-Cowboys Inactives: Dallas without LB Lee, RB McFadden vs. Los Angeles

New, comments

Here are the players that will be sitting out on Thanksgiving day when the L.A. Chargers travel to Dallas to take on the Cowboys.

Here’s some good news, if you’re a Los Angeles Chargers fan:

Not a single starter on the inactives report! Most of the guys on this list are ineffective backups, at that. On short rest, this is a fairly impressive showing by the training staff.

How do the Cowboys look?

Don’t fret, Mike Nugent is only inactive because Dan Bailey is back from injury today and they haven’t gotten around to cutting Nugent yet (or because they’re waiting to make sure Bailey is 100% healthy before they do).

I’m not sure Darren McFadden has been healthy yet this year, which marks a sad end to a weird NFL career.

Sean Lee is the Cowboys’ most important defensive player. He’s been out for a couple of weeks and will be out for a couple of more. Look for the Chargers to attack that with lots of passes up the middle from Philip Rivers to Austin Ekeler and Hunter Henry.
