We know the Dallas Cowboys are going to be in the playoffs but, what seed they will end up being still remains to be seen.

One thing that we do know is that this Dallas team is starting to get healthy and players back at key positions as they get ready for their playoff run. We’ve seen over the last few months the Cowboys were losing players to injuries left and right, causing plenty of fans to be concerned about their ability to make noise in the playoffs.

Here’s a list of the injuries Dallas is currently navigating:

Jourdan Lewis – Foot 

Anthony Brown – Knee 

Terence Steele – Knee

Johnathan Hankins – Pectoral

Leighton Vander Esch – Shoulder

Matt Farniok – Hamstring 

Tony Pollard – Thigh

Tyler Biadasz – Ankle

The Cowboys have been able to adapt and keep things going despite these injuries but they need some of these players to get back to the level of player we’ve seen out of this team earlier in the season. Four players in particular who have been on the mend and look to return for the Cowboys’ playoff run are very important to their chances of getting deeper this season. Here are those players and what they are going to add to this offense and defense for Dallas.
