ARLINGTON, Texas -- There were no real surprises regarding the Cowboys' inactives with the exception of wide receiver Cole Beasley, who is dressing for the first time in two weeks.
Beasley was active for the regular-season opener at the New York Giants but wasn't the next two weeks. He was active for the Chicago game and had two catches for 14 yards.
Injuries and depth changes on special teams made him inactive the next two weeks.
With Beasley back on the game-day roster and No. 3 receiver Kevin Ogletree playing inconsistently, it will be interesting to see who gets more playing time.
The other Cowboys' inactives: Safety Charlie Peprah, safety Matt Johnson, linebacker Kyle Wilber, center Phil Costa and defensive end Sean Lissemore. The health of Johnson (hamstring), Costa (ankle) and Lissemore (ankle) are the main reasons they're out.
The Giants' inactives: Wide receiver Jerrel Jernigan, safety Kenny Phillips, linebacker Jacquian Williams, defensive end Adewale Ojomo, tackle James Brewer, tight end Adrien Robinson, defensive tackle Rocky Bernard.
