Falcons Cowboys inactives: Dallas missing Taco Charlton, Tavon Austin, Sean Lee

We already knew the big news: Deion Jones is out and Matt Bryant is back.

NFL: Dallas Cowboys at Atlanta Falcons Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Falcons and Dallas Cowboys face off in Atlanta with both teams in a must-win situation if they want to keep a realistic shot on making the playoffs. We had high hopes that Deion Jones would return, but those hopes were dashed earlier this week when Dan Quinn ruled him out.

One notable on the inactives: Falcons are going without a fullback.

Extra blocking will probably go to Logan Paulsen and Brian Hill. Otherwise, no surprises.

Tavon Austin has been out a few weeks with a groin injury, but has proven, at best, as an inconsistent weapon. Taco Charlton was ruled out earlier this week with a shoulder injury, and we knew Sean Lee would be out because he’s actually ruled out every week. Most were expected injuries but that is a lot of talent missing today’s game.
