The Buffalo Bills should have one of their top special teams players and backup defenders back when they face the Dallas Cowboys this Thursday. Head coach Sean McDermott announced that safety Siran Neal, who missed last week's game against the Denver Broncos, has cleared the concussion protocol.

Neal was listed as a full participant on Monday's injury report, which was only an estimation since the team only held a walk-through. Tackle Ty Nsekhe was still out with an ankle injury, as was wide receiver Robert Foster, who suffered a hamstring injury on Sunday. Center Mitch Morse, who left the game with a finger injury, was listed as a limited participant.

For the Cowboys, starting defensive tackle Antwaun Woods will miss Thursday's game with sprained MCL. They're still evaluating linebacker Leighton Vender Esch, who has a neck injury, and starting safety Jeff Heath's status is up in the air (shoulder).
