The Dallas Cowboys will look to win their fifth consecutive game when they take on the New England Patriots in Week 6 NFL action. It looks like the team won't be missing any major playmakers as cornerback Trevon Diggs and running back Ezekiel Elliott are both expected to suit up on Sunday.

Trevon Diggs Injury Update

Diggs has been dealing with a sprained right ankle that forced him to stay on the sidelines during practice this past week. He was originally listed as questionable for this game, but has seemingly progressed enough to play. The 24-year-old has been a shining star on this Dallas defense so far.

The second-year pro currently leads the NFL with 6 interceptions and has forced a pick in every single game this season. Diggs has become a leader on this defense and has racked up a team-high 9 pass breakups. He is one of a couple early favorites for the NFL Defensive Player of the Year award.

Ezekiel Elliott Injury Update

Meanwhile, Elliott was listed as questionable for the second straight week because of a rib injury. The Pro Bowler was limited in practice this week, yet will continue to play through the pain. Elliott has turned a corner after a slow start to the season by posting back-to-back 100-plus yard games.

The sixth-year pro is also averaging a career-high 5.3 yards per carry and has scored 6 touchdowns on the year. The Cowboys head into Sunday afternoon healthy and ready to go as 3.5-point road favorites against the Patriots, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
