Dallas Cowboys linebacker Justin Durant might able to play against the New York Giants on Sunday.
Durant missed their last game against the Washington Redskins with a concussion. On Thursday he returned to practice and was listed as limited. The Cowboys could also have linebacker Sean Lee against the Giants, who was a limited participant in practice for the second consecutive day.
However, defensive lineman David Irving missed practice for a second consecutive day with a concussion.

The Cowboys don’t have any more room for error this season. They share a 6-6 record with Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions, but don’t hold the tiebreaker over either team. All three are behind the 7-5 Atlanta Falcons, who are one game behind the Carolina Panthers for the final NFC wild-card spot.
While the Giants have only won two games this year, the Cowboys are in no position to take their division rival lightly, especially on the road. A fairly healthy defense will give them a better chance at securing a necessary victory.
