The Cowboys have been relatively injury-free during the season, but head into Minnesota with questions at tight end and fullback. 

Fullback Steve Gronkowski didn't play on Sunday against the Titans due to a groin injury. However, Coach Wade Phillips said that he expected Gronkowski to practice on Wednesday.

Linebacker Bradie James suffered a knee sprain during Sunday's game, but returned to the game and was able to finish. An MRI on Monday revealed no ligament damage.

Phillips said that he doesn't expect James to practice Wednesday, but he does expect him to play against Minnesota. James has never missed a game in his eight-year career. 

Tight End Martellus Bennett was seen wearing a protective boot on Monday. While Bennett didn't say much about the ankle, Phillips said that it wasn't a high ankle sprain.

While there is no timetable for his return, Bennett has not been ruled out of this week's game against the Titans. 

Wide Receiver Dez Bryant suffered small injures to his ankle and hand, but returned to Sunday's game and should be able to practice and play this week.
