It may be tempting to want to see a massive shakeup after a ridiculously disappointing Week 3 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, but it's way too early for the Dallas Cowboys to panic.
This team has been dealing with a bunch of injuries, and one bad showing from a banged-up team doesn't mean you're doing anything wrong. With that being said, not everyone on the roster is contributing, and the team getting healthy starters back will take away some depth players' chances of getting on the field.
Here are our predictions for five Cowboys who will be inactive against the New England Patriots in Week 4.
Cowboys Predictions: Week 4 Inactives vs. Patriots
1. Brock Hoffman/Sean Harlow
Brock Hoffman and Sean Harlow may not end up being official inactives in Week 4 because they may well end up sent down to the practice squad before then, but a lot will depend on the Cowboys' offensive line health.
We got Tyler Smith back last week, but both Zack Martin (ankle) and Tyler Biadasz (hamstring) were sidelined. That meant both were inactive against the Cardinals, so Hoffman and Harlow were called up onto the active roster from the practice squad.
Martin and Biadasz were both game-time decisions who tested out their injuries in pregame warmups on Sunday, and with both having been close enough to playing last week I'm feeling good that we get both back in the lineup this week.
Hoffman got the start at center in place of Biadasz, while Harlow served as a backup and only saw the field on special teams. If one of Biadasz or Martin does end up sitting again, you can assume one of these two will remain active, while the injured lineman sticks on the inactive list.
