Smith, James Inactive

Dwight Smith's injured hamstring hurt the team last week. This week, he's not going to be given the chance to get burned over the top -- instead being announced as inactive.

The Vikings will be without safety Dwight Smith and DE Erasmus James – both of whom have been de-activated for today's game.

The Vikings' inactives also include Brooks Bollinger (3rd QB), LB Vinny Ciurciu, G Brian Daniels, OT Chase Johnson and FB Naufahu Tahi.

The Cowboys inactives are G Joe Berger, CB Courtney Brown, OT Doug Free, WR Terry Glenn, CB Anthony Henry, FB Oliver Hoyte and OT James Marten.
