The Arizona Cardinals enter Week 3 with an 0-2 record against the NFC East, but the buck doesn’t stop there as the Dallas Cowboys visit State Farm Stadium on Sunday.

After an encouraging half of football against the New York Giants, Arizona fell flat on its face on both sides of the ball in the second half, squandering a 21-point lead in the home-opening loss.

Dallas is coming off two games where its defense carried a heavy load in in Week 1 before the offense and special teams did a lot of the work in Week 2 to reach 2-0 on the season.

The injury report leading up to kickoff is similar to last week, with Leki Fotu being questionable for Sunday after being a limited participant with a shoulder issue all week that kept him out of Week 2.

Linebacker Josh Woods also missed Week 2 with an ankle injury and will not suit up against the Cowboys, but is on track to play soon.

Cowboys All-Pro guard Zack Martin did not practice all week because of an ankle injury and is questionable for Week 3 after starting the first two games for Dallas. Center Tyler Biadasz was a new addition to the injury report on Thursday, and did not practice on Friday. He is also questionable.

Additionally, the Cowboys’ camp confirmed that cornerback Trevon Diggs tore his ACL during practice Thursday.
