Dallas Cowboys quarterback Andy Dalton will be healthy enough to return to the field against the Vikings in Week 11. Dalton missed the last two games due to a concussion and COVID-19. Garrett Gilbert, remarkably in his 7th year in the league, played well enough last week to come up just one touchdown short of beating the undefeated Pittsburgh Steelers.

Head coach Mike McCarthy said, “I think that’s a fair and accurate statement,” when asked if Andy Dalton would return to the starting role. Dallas will have to run the table to finish the year if they hope to achieve a winning season.

More from the NFC

  • David Montgomery suffered a concussion in the Bears’ game against the Titans. He is currently listed as questionable. Should he miss time, the Bears may be forced to start Cordarrelle Patterson at running back vs the Vikings this week.
  • Cardinals starting running back Kenyan Drake returned to practice this week. Drake missed Arizona’s game against Miami after suffering an ankle injury. His opponent, the Buffalo Bills, allow the 11th most rushing yards to opposing teams so far this year.
  • Chris Carson and Carlos Hyde are both expected to practice all week. Carson “has a chance” according to head coach Pete Carroll. Carson’s return would be more impactful, though Hyde has been just fine in relief.
