Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard was ruled out for Sunday’s game at Washington due to a foot injury.

Pollard also averages 28.8 yards per kickoff return, including a 100-yard touchdown against the Las Vegas Raiders on Thanksgiving Day.

Other inactive players for the Cowboys included tight end Sean McKeon, defensive end Azur Kamara, safety Israel Mukuamu, wide receiver Simi Fehoko, guard/center Matt Farniok and quarterback Will Grier.

For Washington, inactive players included running back J.D. McKissic (concussion) as well as cornerback Corn Elder, linebacker Jordan Kunaszyk and wide receivers Dax Milne and Antonio Gandy-Golden.
