Receiver Miles Austin and safety Pat Watkins are expected to start this week, and Tashard Choice and Marion Barber will have to carry the load at running back.
Starting safety Gerald Sensabaugh, who had surgery on his right thumb Monday, officially was ruled out of Sunday’s game. He said earlier this week that he hoped to return after the bye week, which is next week.
Receiver Roy Williams (ribs) and running back Felix Jones (knee) have all but been ruled out. The Cowboys list them as doubtful on their official injury report, and they aren't expected to make the trip to Kansas City.
This will be the 12th of a possible 21 games that Jones has missed with injuries since the Cowboys made him a first-round pick last year. Williams, who was traded from Detroit last October, has not missed an NFL game since sitting out the final four games of the 2007 season with a knee injury.
Center Andre Gurode (knee) was limited in practice again Friday, and he is listed as questionable. But Gurode said Friday that he will play.
