Cowboys Linebacker Unlikely To Play On Thursday

He's missed two straight games.

Dallas Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy said linebacker Anthony Barr will be ''hard pressed'' to play Thursday against the New York Giants.

Barr suffered the injury in practice on Saturday and was unable to play Sunday in the team's massive win over the Minnesota Vikings. He also missed Monday's practice. 

If Barr is unable to play on Thursday, as seems likely, Luke Gifford will continue to see his role increased.

The former first-round pick has 31 total tackles, one fumble recovery and one pass defended over eight games played this season in his Cowboys' debut.
