FRISCO, Texas – The Dallas Cowboys ruled out quarterback Andy Dalton for Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles with a concussion on Saturday, meaning rookie Ben DiNucci will start in key NFC East meeting. .Dalton suffered the concussion in the third quarter of last week’s loss to the Washington football team on a hit by linebacker Jon Bostic. Owner and general manager Jerry Jones told 105.3 The Fan on Friday that Dalton “should be ready to go next week”.

Washington football linebacker Jon Bostic was fined $ 12,000 for his shot last week on Dalton, according to a source.

Dalton will remain in Dallas as the team flies to Philadelphia. He did not practice during the week but was able to attend some meetings. The Cowboys face the Pittsburgh Steelers on Nov. 8 at AT&T Stadium ahead of their week off.

Seventh-round pick DiNucci completed 2 of 3 passes for 39 yards after Dalton left last week’s game. He took most of the work of the first team in practice during the week. Garret Gilbert, who joined the team two weeks ago, will be DiNucci’s replacement.

Linebacker Sean Lee will make his season debut after being activated in the roster of 53 injured non-reserve players. He had pelvic surgery early in the season and has been training for the past two weeks, but his role is unknown behind Jaylon Smith and Leighton Vander Esch.

Center Joe Looney (knee) was also activated from the injured reserve after missing the last three games. He’s started the first four games, but the Cowboys are expected to continue with rookie Tyler Biadasz at center with Looney serving as the three-inside substitute.

Cornerback Saivion Smith was called up from the practice squad after the Cowboys decided not to activate cornerback Chidobe Awuzie, who hasn’t played since Week 2 against the Atlanta Falcons in because of hamstring strain.
