Entering their first game action of the season, the 2022 Cowboys will be taking a safe approach against the Broncos. A majority of the starters are either inactive for the contest or won’t spend more than a quarter on the field. Considering how thin positions like wide receiver are due to injury, it’s no surprise that Dallas is cautious.
The star players on both sides will all have a veterans’ day off in Denver. That includes quarterback Dak Prescott, wide receiver CeeDee Lamb, linebacker Micah Parsons and many more.
Cowboys out vs Broncos:Dak, Tyron Smith, Zack Martin, Ezekiel Elliott, Tony Pollard, CeeDee Lamb, Micah Parsons,Trevon Diggs, DeMarcus Lawrence, Osa Odighizuwa and Dorance Armstrong, Leighton Vander Esch, Jabril Cox, Jayron Kearse, Jourdan Lewis, Anthony Brown and Donovan Wilson

Even with a long list of starters out, the Cowboys finally get to see the 2022 draft class on the field, including first-round selection Tyler Smith. Former teammates of Randy Gregory may not meet him on the field but plenty of Dallas players will be looking to make an impression. One of those was quarterback Will Grier

Grier was expected to see playing time but a groin injury will delay his debut for the Cowboys. Cooper Rush will likely take the majority of the snaps versus the Broncos in his absence.
